Top Five Educational Apps for Kids - Engineer Mommy
Sep 192016

To keep my kids entertained and engaged, nothing works better than a great app on my phone or tablet! Recently, I have been on the hunt for the best educational apps for my kids. I want them to have fun and learn something, and I’m sharing my top five picks today! By the way, all of these apps can be found on Amazon Underground, an app store for Android devices that features 100% free games & apps.
When I first discovered Amazon Underground, I was totally impressed. There is such a huge variety of family-friendly, premium apps available for free download. There are apps for all age groups and for all needs. All Amazon Underground apps feature the iconic “Actually Free” sash on them! Amazon Underground is available to customers in the United States, UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.

Ready for my top five kid’s apps now? Let’s get right to my list.

Top Five Educational Apps for Kids

1. Kid’s Adventures Puzzles This is one of my daughter’s favorite games. It features dozens of fun jigsaw puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty. There are many different scenes to choose from, including kids playing sports, kids at the amusement park, kids at the campsite, etc. This app is fun and entertaining for my five-year-old, but it’s also perfectly challenging for her, as well.

2. Match ’em: This is a tile matching game, where kids have to figure out which animal silhouette matches the shape in the middle of the screen. It’s a great way to teach the concept of pattern recognition. Both my three-year-old and my five-year-old enjoy this matching game. They love to select the category of images in the app (animals, fruits, etc.).

3. Barnyard Games for kids: This is a powerhouse app filled with games for kids of all ages. The home screen of this app lets you choose games based on your child’s age (18 months, 2 years, 3 years, etc.) This app is filled with various educational games for kids. There are so many opportunities for advancement within this app, such as learning animal sounds, shapes, colors, letters, numbers, and more.

5. Dr. Panda Swimming Pool: This is such an adorable app with cute graphics. It features a panda, along with a few other animals, playing in a swimming pool & experiencing other water rides. You can pick the animals’ swimsuits, guide them through the various water attractions, and control various elements of the rides (water sprayer, bouncing ball, etc.) My daughter loves playing with this app. It’s a really fun way to teach her the concept of cause & effect.
