Welcome to another Free App Saturday, where I try to bring you fresh and fun apps for educating your kiddos, through fun and challenging games. As always, check to make sure the app is still free before downloading, and be aware that there are sometimes in-app purchases, I am not responsible for any iTunes charges:-)
Colorfy is the digital version of the new mandala and zentangle coloring books currently popular. I don’t know about you, but I probably have at least 6 of those books in my house right now, and all are in the works, they are solo fun and soothing:-)
Poems by heart is an amazing app I have just stumbled upon that I am in love with!! With interactive memorization of classics your kids will rapidly be able to master popular poems and impress all those naysayers out there;-) Seriously, it really is awesome, with Shakespeare, Poe, Whitman, Yeats and more, this is a well rounded literature program all on its own.
Who Was? is a super fun and silly style game of recall for historical figures and Pop Culture icons. Rapid fire questions and caricature style figures make this a fun and engaging quiz app for upper Middle School and above.
Do you have those kids whose imagination cannot be contained, and must be expressed, in all its messy glory, all the time? I sure do, and this may be the best app for those times I just can’t handle the mess, 123D Sculpt allows for a free range of creation, as much as you imagination will come up with, no mess included. With awesome rendering, and multidimensional abilities, the fact that this is free is astounding to be honest!!
If you are looking to get out and travel a bit this winter, but weather precludes it, along with the cost, how about a virtual trip to the British Museum? This app has an amazing collection of all of its masterpieces and famous works to explore, a history of the musuem itself, as well an information about getting to the museum and getting around, for the time you actually can manage to cross the Pond to see the museum:-)
I hope you have enjoyed this weeks offerings on Free App Saturday, and as always, if you have a fave free app, feel free to share it!
Until next week…
