We’re living in a digital world now, and there’s an app for just about everything you can imagine. This week, The New Parents Guide presents Tech Week: we’ll spotlight some of our favorite family-friendly apps. Many are free; the others are worth it! Feel free to add the names of the apps you love in the combox.
How could we spend a week on apps without talking about games? Kids love games, and parents love games where kids can learn important skills while having fun! Here’s a game that lets kids practice writing–right on the touchscreen!
Before your child even picks up a pencil, it’s a good idea to practice the skills and motions needed to form letters and numbers. Your toddler or preschooler can work on writing skills with your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad by using iWriteWords! Players use their fingers to help Mr. Crab collect numbers in sequence–drawing a letter or number at the same time. When the word is complete, it is shown alongside a picture. The artwork is adorable! Parents can review their children’s progress in letter formation. Best of all, by practicing with an app, there’ll be no crayon (or marker) on the walls!
This app costs $2.99 and is available for iPhone or iPad only. See our other iPhone apps for kids here!
