I know many of us parents are getting into apps with our kids and as back-to-school is only weeks away (6 days for us!), I thought I would share some educational apps from PBS! One of which is designed especially for PBS Parents.
- The Electric Company Party Game (FREE – iPad, Kindle, Android, Nook) What is better than a free app? How about improving kids ages 6+ vocabulary, reading, AND math skills! Perfect for a summer play date – this game can be played with as many as 12 players.
