Educational iPad games for kids
- January 20, 2012 at 12:38 pm #22768
Hi! My kids (preschooler and first grader) love playing on our family’s iPad, so I’m always looking for new apps to download. I like to choose games for them that have an educational slant whenever possible, and the app store typically has some good options.
Anyone have suggestions for good iPad apps for kids? What’s your child’s favorite?January 22, 2012 at 10:30 am #22770
my daughter loves the monkey preschool lunchbox game. i think it has some great skill-builders in there: shapes, counting, letter recognition, and more. the animation is really cute too.January 23, 2012 at 8:00 am #22771
Thanks! I’ll check that one out.January 24, 2012 at 7:31 am #22772
Shape Builder and Tozzle are popular ones with my toddler. He likes to drag the shapes into the matching slots. He also enjoys the simple drawing apps like Doodle Buddy. Apps like this are great for the car or waiting in restaurants.January 25, 2012 at 11:16 am #22773
Bright Horizons recently posted an article from on the Bright Horizons Google+ page that lists “30+ Best iPhone Apps for Kids“. The article gives descriptions of all of the apps, the age group they are meant for, as well as which devices you can download them to (iPhone, iPad, etc.). There might be a few good options for you to check out!January 30, 2012 at 3:09 am #22774
My son playing Fractions. Smart pirate. He would have difficulty with math problems. Now his math is improving and loving math at the same time.
Also I recommend Natural Science for Kids. City of Light. This app can help kids learning Optic and Light Phenomena.February 2, 2012 at 9:40 am #22775
My kids like all sorts of aps. The one my 2 1/2 year old is into right now is called preschool memory. Basically it is electronic memory. The advantage is, every time there is a match, the ipad says what the match is. My son then says the word back (just something he does). It’s amazing how much better he has gotten at this.
My 5 year old recently got into Sudoku. You may laugh but she really enjoys it and especially likes the reward of getting the numbers to be the right color when she is right
Other favorites include Cookie Doodle, Candy Doodle, Angry Birds, Swampy, Cut the Rope (which happens to be in the 30+ Apps list), Fruit Ninja and Find It.February 6, 2012 at 7:55 am #22776
Some of these sound like they’d be perfect for my kids. I’ll go download them now. Thanks, everyone! And if you come across more, please be sure to share. I’ll do the same!February 21, 2012 at 10:42 am #22777

And there is also one beatiful game for children – Math flowers for mommy. It’s fun educaional math game! Help a little girl pick flowers while she rides her bike. TILT the device to move bike left or right. Be careful, watch out for stones and curious hedgehogs – don’t run into them!
My son like it!
