I've just purchased an IPad, and we will be taking a long haul flight next week with our 18month old DD. I'm looking for suggestions for good toddler apps and/or where to download things for her to play with/view on the plane.
** I posted this in the 12-24 month section, but thought people in the general section may have ideas as well, so have re-posted here.
Sound touch is great. My DD loves it. You click on an animal/ object depending on the category you are in, and it makes the appropriate sound and shows you a photo. There are about 5 or 6 different photos for each animal/ object. There is a free lite version but I was more than happy to buy the full app.
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
