Learn something new while waiting in line.

Summer is here and that means that you and your family will go on great adventures whether it is a plane ride or a road trip or even a ride down to the beach this warm weather brings some great fun in the sun. Think about what you have to do before you get to the adventure, usually it involves standing in line or waiting in a parking lot which gives your child a lot of time to play on all of their ipads or phones. Since they are on their devices anyway why not use it as a tool for fun learning. There are so many amazing apps these days available for free in either itunes or the google play store.

 

Counting caterpillars and reflex math are great ways to engage your child while having fun, you will see your child’s learning capability grow and eyes widen with excitement. Star Map and Learning Bird ID allow your child to broaden their horizons past the clouds and the sky while understanding their immediate surroundings as well. Teaching your child to read at a young age is so important to the early development and there are many amazing apps to help assist you, Hale’s Tale and Teach your monster to read are just a few of the great apps that we suggest.

Bluster and Mad Libs expand on storytelling, problem solving and spelling allowing your child to get ahead. All of these apps and more are specifically designed to benefit your child’s learning process and I know that angry birds is fun but lets help our children learn and grown. The next time you find yourself waiting at a counter or standing in a line take advantage of that time and watch them laugh, learn and have fun.
