The One with iPad Apps?


Saturday, October 13, 2012

Fox's 2nd birthday is tomorrow and as a present we got him ourselves an iPad! We're finally in the loop :)

I'm flying BY MYSELF with Fox and Jane next week and one of the biggest reasons we got an iPad is to help me travel. Or really, to help keep Fox happy while I'm holding Jane. I only have so many hands!

So now we have this new toy and I want to realize its full potential!
What are some must-have apps? 
Free is best of course, but if they're essential we might throw down a couple of bucks. Lemme know lemme know lemme know! I'm looking for apps for kids as well as adults!

  3. There is an AWESOME LDS sing-along, and it's BY FAR, Hattie's favorite one! She only gets to watch it during the last 20 minutes of our drive to San Antonio. LOL. That's when we need it most. Tee hee. ;-) (I think it's good not to show them the apps when you're not traveling or else they get bored when you need the most... :-( )

    There is also an "I Love Colors" book that she loves.

    Both were free.

  4. I can't help you with any apps as I don't own an Ipad or Ipod or I anything!
    However, I just wanted to say Good luck with your flight. I too am flying with my toddler alone for the first time this week. Only one, unlike your two, but he is now 3 and a real handful. I have been stressing about how to keep him entertained for 2 hours by myself! But I have been making some toddler busy bags that he will only get to see for the first time when we're flying.
    All the best - I hope we both do just fine!

  8. My 3 year old son loves Animal Phone, all of the Sandra Boynton books apps - these ones aren't free but are the best money we've ever spent on apps, Sesame Street Monster at the end of this book, Agnitus, Duplo Jams and Lego 4+. The apps that I love are Plants vs Zombies, Pinterest, soundhound, Slacker for free music, and Matching with friends. Enjoy the iPad!

  9. Jewels with Buddies and World of Yahtzee so we can play each other! Nook, PBS Kids, Dsiney Channel and Disney Junior, Mickey Mouse Road Rally, Toy Story, Mad Wig Out is funm Pirate School. ToothBrush is good for helping them time how long they brush and tell them where to brush.

  10. HOOOOOORAY! Fox is so lucky:)

    I hope that your travels with the kids goes well!! I am not sure what apps to get--but I'm sure if you search for games, kids, age 2....that will give you lots to pick from:)

    HUGS! and Happy birthday, FOX!!!!!!!!
