My kids love their tablets and they really come in handy for keeping the kids entertained while we’re out. Whether it’s waiting in the carpool line, running errands with me, having some quiet time at home, or traveling- their tablets really come in handy. Their favorite apps are anything that contain games and my favorite apps for them are ones that help them to learn. I try to fill their tablets (and even a few on my phone) with apps that are educational, but fun. If I can sneak in their abc’s, 123’s, and colors while they’re playing a fun game with music they can dance and sing along too, then we’re all happy.
Amazon is one of my favorite places to shop, watch shows, and even get apps. Amazon underground is full of 100% free apps and games. No paid upgrades or waiting times and Amazon Underground offers a lot of the extra features that you need to buy in other app stores, for free. One of my biggest pet peeves is finding fun apps for my kids and then having them complain that they need to buy extra content or upgrades. With Amazon Underground I no longer have to worry about that and it’s a great perk. Packed with a variety of fun and educational apps and games for the kids, I’m sharing my top 5 picks that our toddler loves. They’ve been a huge help with teaching him his colors, numbers, and letters. We can sit down and play them together or he can play on his own.
