Kids Academy | Educational Apps for ChildrenMy kids are great with learning apps. The hard part is finding one that keeps their attention, because I don't have time to keep installing new ones, am I right?
Preschool Kindergarten Learning Kids Game
Free SongsThis is a fabulous app. The songs are fun, catchy and original, and it has a wide range of both great games and entertainment. How wide a range? Both my three-year-old and my five-year-old were enthralled, to the point where there was almost a full scale-battle over the tablet. The graphics are bright and cheerful, and great quality...VERY appealing. They totally seemed to forget they were doing math, which is amazing in itself.
Bugs, Shapes and Robots Face Paint for Toddlers
FREE for a limited time! (usually $2.99)
My youngest, the three-year-old, had a blast with this app. She's big on tracing apps in general, but the great colors and creative shapes really caught her attention. As you see, it's not just the basic shapes, but more fun ones, like the half moon. It uses the tactile learning process of tracing to assist learning about shapes, which really helps with the retention. It's not a memory hog, either, so no worries about tablet crash. And you collect fireflies. A little cute goes a long way.
