Fun Free Educational iPAD Apps for Younger Kids

Below are 4 Great Educational Apps for young Children

Motion Math: Hungry Fish

Motion Math: Hungry Fish

One of my favorites for preschoolers is the Motion Math: Hungry Fish. This educational app helps young children learn math. Kids will learn addition by feeding the hungry fish. The game is very simple, little fish swim near the larger fish but are only edible when they contain the correct number on their bellies. The large hungry fish will only eat the number on his stomach and in some case you need to add smaller fish together to create the correct number. The game teaches and keeps their attention. Check out the Motion Math website for other educational games

Toucan Toucan’t

This children’s book is great. I wish most of the children’s book apps were as educational and versatile as this one. The book will read the story when you press play, the pictures are interactive and there is also a coloring book section where children can paint the pages. My girl’s are twins and could easily relate to the story line. The book is very vivid and colorful and encourages children to think about what things they can do with others and what things are better achieved a lone.

The Grouchies by Debbie Wagenbach

This is an app that helps teach children about their different emotions. At an early age children learn that they have different feelings. This book is so cute. Please check out the trailer I found on Youtube below:


Under Sea Adventures Addition iPad App

UnderSea Adventures Addition HD Free Lite and Adventures UnderSea Subtraction HD Free Lite

This is two different educational apps, one for addition and one for subtraction. I think this is a great tool to teach your child in conjunction with non-electronic methods. Your children should already know how to add and subtract a little to be successful at this game, but is a fun game to reinforce addition and subtraction lessons that are being taught.

We are definitely living in the age of electronics, it is an age where technology reigns. In many ways, adults may feel like their children just “get it” while at other times we have to research and try out our gadgets for awhile before we can really understand the new wonders and efficiency that our new toys provide us. We may also get tired of shelling out hundreds of dollars because it is hard to find discounts on electronics when the next best model is released almost every 6 months. For me, I can’t justify paying for apps when I paid almost half a grand for the gadget, so I am very pleased that lite and free versions exist and as I come across apps that I feel are very valuable I will share them with my readers.
