I had a request from a reader – to write a few post on our favorite apps. For those who don’t have a iphone, or droid… or ipad, etc..etc.. this post will mean nothing :) – however for those who do have these things, finding good apps to entertain the kids, can be a life saver at a Doctor’s Office or on long trips.
So here is a list of my favorites!
For the Kids:
Soosiz HD – (cost) I am amazed how well my 5 year old can play it. Each world you beat on it, the levels get harder. So it is always creating for a more challenging game. Which I like :)
Fruit Ninja HD - (free) Hilarious. Fun. Great for entertaining groups of kids – last time I was with my nieces, we had a competition to see who could get the highest score.
Checkers – (free) Classic game. Great for teaching kids strategy.
Sonic – (cost) I was a huge Sonic Sega fan. So I had to have this. My kids however love it too. It’s just like the Sega version!
Early Bird HD – (free) It’s sorta like angry birds, but for younger kids.
Pocket Phonics – (free lite version, I upgraded to full version for like a buck) – great for teaching kids to write! we use this as an activity during home school writing… It also has cursive, which we really push in K-2nd
Carl & Gugi – (cost) So funny, slightly annoying… but Owen (age 2) adores it.
Contraptions – (cost) One of my favorites for sure. For older kids age 7 and up. It really teaches them to solve problems and build things.
TallyTots – (cost) Teaches basic numbers – Owen loves it, although he cant count yet… but our older two actually enjoy it too.
Talking Tom – (free) Similar to Carl & Gugi – but free. Our boys all love this one.
Lego Duplo – (free) If your kids enjoy Legos they will like this one.
Swapsies - (cost) A great one for pre-school kids.
I also recently downloaded Toca Monsters & Curious Zoo – my kids haven’t played the ipad since downloading that though, so I can’t promote those as good ones :) – but they did get great ratings and both are free.
Now next time I will write a post with MY favorite APPS ;-)
Many of these APP’S work on the Kindle or Droid as well.
So check out your APP Store today – and have fun :)
