Educational apps can be great for stimulating your children’s imaginations, and helping them learn through alternative methods. The music, bright colours and animation often piques kids’ interest, helping them absorb information on vocabulary, letters and numbers.
Still, even though your kids are learning through apps, you need to set limits on screen time to protect their eyesight and prevent possible digital device addiction. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends no more than an hour a day of screen time for children aged 2-5, and no screen time at all for infants aged 18 months and younger.
Here are some educational apps that will help the kids learn, while keeping them entertained. You’ll get to kill two birds with one stone!
