About this page
While I strongly agree with limiting the amount of screen time children have, I also believe that not all screen time is created equal. Mindlessly watching videos on any screen is very different from touching and interacting with apps. The apps below provide opportunities to for children to interact with numbers, letters and/or words, providing stimulation for their brains and practice for their hand/eye coordination.
