Creative Google Searching

My 8 year old just discovered a very fun set  of options for searching on Google as we were looking at pictures of bedroom decorating ideas for her room.  Do a Google image search for anything but preferably something colorful - like paint ideas, artwork, paintings, knitting, flowers, etc.  Then check out the lower left hand corner of the page and look for squares of different colors.
Click on any of the different color squares to have your search sorted by color.
What a boon to interior decorating!  Not to mention fun and creative for kids and adults.  There are other options for searching too such as the size of the image, whether or not there are faces in the picture, line drawings and clip art.

We had fun playing with this and we hope you do too.
I always recommend adult supervision for children browsing the internet and especially Google images.  It's amazing the pictures that will show up with the most innocent search.
