My kids all love the devices we have from Verizon – the Motorola Xyboard and the Motorola Droid Razr. Since my four year old is not in school as often as her brother and sister, it means we have more time together. Of course, I still have things I have to do so I can’t entertain her all of the time. She is great about just grabbing one of my devices when I tell her I need to work on laundry, vacuum or whatever it is I need to do. She just sits down and starts having fun (and I usually have to drag her away from it when I am ready to do something with her again). Here are four “Charlotte approved” apps:
You can get the free version to try it out, but once your child clears two levels, they’ll have to buy it (for just $0.99). It was money well spent because my daughter has started with finding the pictures and as she gets older, she can search by silhouette, which will challenge her thinking a little more. (This is her number one pick).
She loves this one because she loves to play connect the dots games. She was anxious for Christmas a few weeks ago so we added this game and it satisfied her need to play Christmas games with her love for connect the dots. I love that she is using her numbers to count and figure out which one comes up next. This game is free.
Kid Paint Coloring (for tablet)
Like so many kids, mine love to color. This one combines my daughter’s love of the tablet with a love of coloring. She just has to click and point to color anything she wants.
This app is free.
This one has 20 puzzles you can try out before you have to pay for it (and my daughter is content with the 20 she has to play with – for now). She can’t get enough of it!!
I am participating in the Verizon Midwest Savvy Savers program and have been provided with a wireless device and size months of service in exchange for my honest opinions about the product.
