For Christmas, my husband bought me an iPhone. (I really have the best husband ever! I love this silly phone.)
Anyway, because I have 5 kids, the majority of my apps on my phone are dedicated to them. This way, I can keep one – or all – of them entertained while we’re shopping, at the doctor’s office, or any time I need to keep them quiet.
But, I don’t believe in idle time being wasted. I like to know that my kids are learning, even while playing.
I happened across a preschool learning app and decided to download it. It had a cute monkey in the icon, and we all know how I feel about monkeys. Since it was only 99 cents, I figured I wouldn’t waste much money if it turned out to be a flop.
Let me tell you, this has been the absolute best 99 cent investment I have ever made. Lucy absolutely loves this app, and asks to “play” it all the time.
Some of the lessons learned through this app include counting, colors, matching, letters, puzzles, and more. After several correct answers, the child gets to pick a sticker and add it to their sticker board. Throughout all the lessons, it encourages the child to keep trying, or cheers for them when they get it right.
I love this app, and I love how much Lucy is learning every time she plays with it. She never gets tired of it, and you can see the wheels in her mind constantly cranking. If you’re looking for a fabulous preschool app for your iPhone or iPod touch, I definitely recommend the Monkey Preschool Lunchbox app.
