If you’re anything like my husband and I, then perhaps your fancy “i” device (an ipod touch in our case) seems to be loaded with more apps for the kids than for the adults. Ever since getting ours this past summer, I have been shocked at how well our preschooler (3.5 years) can navigate the “itouch” all by himself! Consequently, I’ve been on the look-out for great educational apps that we can use with him and Punflay’s apps certainly meet my qualifications! They have a whole division geared specifically to kids!
The really great thing about the measurement app is that it is actually like 5 apps in one! Talk about a great value! Addressing important concepts like time, amounts, and size, I think this is a great app for young learners. Although it is actually marketed for kindergarteners, Big Brother can still follow most of the activities. So, I definitely think that this could still be worthwhile for your older preschooler. The “Crazy Clock” is a great way to reinforce his number learning and introduce him to telling time. As a mom who likes introducing Big Brother to helping in the kitchen, I really like that “Fill Me Up” is all related to amounts of food. And, he thinks the monster in “Scale Tale” is great–he gets so excited when he gets the weight correct and the monster eats the food!
So, if you’re looking for some good kid-friendly apps, you should definitely check out Punflay! Quite a few options to choose from with an affordable price tag! And speaking of affordable, how about a free download?!
