(StatePoint) Choosing educational games and apps for kids can be difficult -- very few are both fun and educational. And if they’re not fun, kids won’t play with them and won’t learn from them.
With this in mind, the learning experts at LeapFrog, the leader in educational entertainment for kids, have assembled a handy checklist of key tips for parents to consider before making a purchase.
Sifting through the thousands of games and apps that claim to be educational can be a daunting task for parents. It’s all about finding fun, age-appropriate games that adjust to your child’s level as he or she progresses, and that emphasize important subjects like math and science. It’s also important that the games be created or approved by learning experts and any apps should comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act.
More free tips for parents are available in LeapFrog’s Parent’s Guide to Educational Games & Apps at www.leapfrog.com/parentguide.
Putting in the time to find fun and engaging games and apps can help children excel both educationally and developmentally inside the classroom and at home.
