Education is important, but it doesn’t always have to be boring. While we know learning happens best when done kinetically, by hand or in some other physical connection, we also agree that technology plays an important part. We love learning apps on phones, tablets, and devices. They re perfect for those busy days in the car traveling, stuck at the doctor’s office, or stuck in the house from rain, sickness, or some other reason. However, learning apps can sometimes be very costly. Who wants to spend so much money on a virtual application that your kids will only use occasionally? We don’t know about you but we would rather spend that money on something we can touch, hold, and use on a daily basis. That is why we love to see learning applications and websites that offer free games and activities.
Some of the greatest learning activities available for your devices are available from the best companies. Here is a quick top ten best free learning apps that will aid you in keeping your kids interacting on an educational level even when they cannot be incredibly active or do not have great books and activities available to them.
