Tiny Tap:

There's a new counting activity available in Tiny Tap called Let's Count.


Party Like a Preschooler:

If you have an Amazon Prime account, you can create playlists within Prime Music. I recently found this album of nursery rhymes that adds a fun little twist, and they are much easier to listen to. My own 3-year old loves it...and I do too!
