Alien Assignment - App Review

Alien Assignment - App Review | App Snaps | Scoop.it

This is one of the more innovative apps I have come across. It was developed by the Fred Rogers Center (yes, that's Mr. Rogers), which is all about making connections between early learning and children's media. What's so cool about ithe app is that it gets kids to explore their immediate environment and has them interact with an adult. In order to solve a problem, kids use the device to take pictures of possible solutions. The app then asks kids to have an adult review their solutions. All of that, and it's free. Ages 4+/PreK-Grade 2

Toca Tailor - App Review

Toca Tailor - App Review | App Snaps | Scoop.it

If you have kids and you don't know about Toca Boca apps, you should definitely pick up a few. Super cute, fun, and funky, they really never disappoint. I'm a big fan of fashion design, but get a little tired of seeing apps that perpetuate stereotypes about beauty and women. This one is completely non-offensive, with gender-inclusive design and cute, child-like models (including animals). Ages 4+/Fun for all ages.

Butterfly HD

For kids who are into nature, insects, or butterflies, Butterfly HD is a delightful app. I think of myself as a kid into nature and insects, and I was mesmerized by the collection of videos, images, and facts provided in this one. I will never lose that feeling of wonder as I watch a caterpillar form its chrysalis or emerge as a butterfly. What a treat! Ages 4+/PreK-Grade 8.

YogiPlay Parent Center | YogiPlay Smart Apps for Kids and Parents

YogiPlay Parent Center | YogiPlay Smart Apps for Kids and Parents | App Snaps | Scoop.it

YogiPlay is a great resource for parents who need some help wading through the thousands of "educational" apps in the App Store. You can enter your kid's age and get recommendations by learning type -- literacy, math, physical development, etc. Plus, lots of the app reviews on here were written by yours truly. Yep, I'm partial.

Cars in sandbox: Construction

This sweet toddler app had me hooked from the get-go. Eight construction vehicles that actually move, scoop, lift, grab, and dump. Kids hold a finger on the vehicle to start the engine, then follow visual cues to figure out what tasks they can do with each. If kids can't get to a real sandbox, this is a super fun substitute. Ages 2+/ PreK

Bubble Guppies: Animal School Day - App Review

Bubble Guppies: Animal School Day - App Review | App Snaps | Scoop.it

Bubble Guppies: Animal School Day is super cute for little kids and teaches them about different animals. I wasn't familiar with the popular Nick. Jr. show (no preschoolers around here yet), but I thought the characters were absolutely adorable. Lots or replay value here, too. Ages 3+/PreK-Grade 1.

Pettson's Inventions

Those of you who know me know I'm a bit of a geek, which is why I found Pettson's Inventions such a blast. Kids put together various contraptions in order to reach some quirky goal, such as waking up an old man. These aren't as difficult as they look, so little kids can be successful. Ages 4+/PreK-Grade 4 (Though I enjoyed it, too).
