The Best Apps for Your Kids

Nowadays apps can be an awesome way to help your kids learn about themselves and the world around them. At Asda, we’re all for responsible usage of apps by kids – given that they’re used constructively – so here’s our rundown of a few great apps for kids.

1. Pocket Phonics

One of the most difficult challenges for kids when they’re starting to learn to talk is recognising and producing letters. This is an app that teaches children how to say, recognise and write sounds and letters. It’s also pretty cheap, with a low cost of £1.99, which is great value for an app that’s bound to help your child get ahead.

2. Draw Something

Children love to draw – regardless of how good they are! Draw Something is a free app suitable for anybody over the age of 3, and calls itself the world’s most popular drawing game. You can play with your kids and other members of your family, helping you all stay connected when you’re running around as a busy parent in the 21st century.

3. Handwriting Without Tears

Handwriting Without Tears: Wet-Dry-Try Suite for Capitals, Numbers & Lowercase is the app-based version of the popular beginning-handwriting program of the same name. This app makes learning to write fun, and shows you – the concerned parent – how well your child is doing. With audio tuition, the app does a brilliant job of giving your child loads of encouragement, too.

4. Loopimal

This amazing, creative app helps kids get into music by introducing them to the concept of looping. Before long, your children will be creating music by using pre-programmed blocks to layer melody and rhythm over a bass beat! And because the music is pre-programmed, there’s no chance of it sounding bad!

5. Marble Math Junior

This app gamifies learning the basic components of maths using addictive marble mazes with maths word problems. This means that as your kids play, they’ll always be learning. This is a really fun game and is something your child should love spending time with, so don’t worry about them getting bored. Whether you’re giving your phone to your child to play with, or you’ve bought them their own, with all of this play, you’ll probably need more data for your phone. Don’t worry, at Asda Mobile we’ve got you covered with our Mega 30-day Christmas Bundle. All you need to do is text MEGA to 2732 before 31st December 2016 and you’ll receive 20GB data, unlimited texts and calls for just £10.
