Parents are looking for ways to keep their kids meaningfully engaged during the long days at home. How about inspiring your kids’ creativity in ways that are both educational and fun? Encourage them to download an app - or three. Here are some of the best creativity-boosting apps. And the best part is, they’re free!
Just because your children can’t be in the same room as their friends, doesn’t mean they can’t still socialize with the introduction of virtual playdates. Free and readily available technology such as FaceTime, Zoom, and Skype make it easier than ever to see friends and even share in some activities without physically getting together.
Looking for safe, fun apps to make the most of screen time? It can be hard to wade through the app store to find quality options! Here are some of our family's favorites. This list covers everything from math to movement - I know you'll find something your kids will love!
During these difficult times, it can be challenging to find indoor activities that will get your kids' bodies moving and keep their minds busy, so they aren’t constantly asking for screen time to entertain them. Add the fact that the activities need to be easy to do and include items that you already have on hand because retail stores are closed for an undetermined amount of time at the moment, all you may hear is “I’m bored” and "There’s nothing to do!”
