Screen time for kids can be beneficial. Here are four educational apps that’ll keep your kids learning and entertained at the same time!
Faces iMake – Right Brain Creativity

Encourage your little one’s creativity while developing their right brain with Faces iMake, an app that allows children to turn images of common items into a face or a complete picture. Besides honing motor skills through all the finger-action, the app also teaches children to think out of the box, and to apply unconventional perspectives to traditional, everyday objects.
Monkey Word School Adventure
Join Milo and his jungle friends as they explore a fun-filled world of letters, sight words, phonics and spelling! The app uses fun jungle-themed animation to make learning super fun, which makes it perfect for budding readers and writers aged three to seven. Trust us, your kiddo will go bananas for Monkey Word School Adventure.
Suitable for kids aged three to eight, Todo Math helps young learners grasp basic math concepts easily, such as counting and writing numbers, introducing them to the world of geometry, and immersing them in everyday math usages such as time and money. Plus, the app includes skill-based math missions, daily math challenges (complete with collectible prizes!) and other cool features – who says learning math can’t be fun?
Lightbot: Code Hour
A great app to introduce children to coding, Lightbot challenges players to guide a robot through each level by coding simple programming commands. It imparts practical understanding of basic concepts such as instruction sequencing, and procedures and loops along the way. The app allows multiplayers, so parents can get in on the coding action too.
