learning games for kidsTechnology is a part of our lives. Many of us use our phones for everything from reading books to watching the news. It is a curse and a blessing. Our children will grow up in a world where they will live and be expected to know how to use this technology. How can we give them practice and use this to our advantage? Make it educational! 

“There is an app for that” is a fun saying but honestly it is true! There is an app for everything! I have gathered a few of my family’s favorite learning apps to help you get started.
