I downloaded the Little Letters app from Mobile Merge several months ago, but Stella hated playing it so I forgot all about it. She accidentally launched it again the other day, and now it’s her favorite one! I think it’s a great one for all ages—little ones like to hear the different sounds and touch the squares, while older kids can practice their letters and numbers. My 4 year-old nephew is in town this week, and we had fun trying to guess which letter was showing with only a few of the squares revealed.
Because I downloaded the Little Letters app several months ago, it has since had a name change to ABC Preschool Alphabet and is now $.99, but I still think it is worth the money. Also, its counterpart, Little Numbers, functions in the same way and is still free.
Living almost 2,000 miles from most of our family/friends makes the holidays difficult. Stella cheered us up this Thanksgiving weekend by going through a bunch of photos of loved ones and reciting their names—yet another simple way to use the iPad 2 with your kids!
Disclaimer: The video does not show all of the family photos that we actually have in our library (I had to cut out some footage in the middle due to stinkerness), so if you think you’re forgotten, think again, Katie, Kara, Brandon, Logan, Mandy, Clint, Amy, Tony, Brenden, Brooks, John, Ilyse, and Mary!
