Adults have Words with Friends, Kids have Ohanarama

Spending quality time with all of your family, especially when your children are young, is extremely challenging in today’s society. I think everyone can relate to that on some level. So when an opportunity arises to connect with family and friends who are not local, online via Facebook, Skypeing or email, we take advantage. Ohanarama is an online social game environment where children and families can connect and challenge each other to all kinds of fun games, bringing family fun that much closer.

Ohana means family in the Hawaiian language and that’s what Ohanarama is all about…family. Through games, activities, gifts and messages, families of elementary school age children can play together, no matter where they are.

Co-founded by a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Mom, Jane Hoffer, Ohanarama is a safe fun social game environment for children ages 5–12 and their families, where they can connect, learn, and play both fun and educational games. At Ohanarama, you can challenge or be challenged by family members in age appropriate game play. You and your family can also work together as a team and challenge other families for bragging rights. It’s free to play and you can earn free prizes! As children play Ohanarama games, they earn tokens and Neuros to use to send gifts to family members or redeem for real world prizes in our Reward Gallery. With Ohanarama, learning is fun and social and the adults in your family network can encourage the development of educational and social skills through game play and other activities.
