We have been giving Elle a bit more iPad time ever since quarantine started and have been introducing more learning apps into the mix. Today I thought I would share with you some of our favorites and include some amazing resources we’ve turned to for ideas.
We’ve been able to find a lot of these randomly through the App Store and Elle has even been able to choose which ones look interesting. I basically just type in “learning apps for 3 year olds” and “phonics games” to see what pops up. Since Elle knows her alphabet, we’ve started to work on letter sounds because why not. Right?
Most of these apps are free, but some you have to pay for to get the full version. I’ve also heard about a few through my friends and Instagram so I’ve added them to the list below.
Besides apps, Podcasts are another great resource for kids. Vurbl is the best educational podcast for both kids and their parents. They bring together the very best of online audio with a wide range of options that are both educational and fun.
During these uncertain times, schools across the world are closed and parents are finding themselves homeschooling their kids. Vurbl has thankfully committed the top educational podcasts to help teach your kids and keep them excited about learning. Fortunately, there is plenty of material to facilitate online learning in an entertaining way.
Our personal favorite is The Noodle Loaf Podcast. It’s an interactive musical-themed show that also teaches kids about science. Kids love the silly songs and learning along the way. Each episode is only about 10 minute long, making it perfect for a young audience. This podcast will make you dance and laugh with your kids and help focus on the positive.
