I have no idea how I missed this gem of a website! Made with Code offers 14 free and fun coding projects for kids, which I may or may not have spent hours playing for "research purposes". Yes, that is it. Research. Made with Code is an Initiative designed to get more girls interested in Computer Science, but of course, this fantastic resource is great for all kids.
Kids use a simplified version of Google's programming language, Blockly, to make a variety of projects. On the simple side, there is Emojify, which is the first one on the page, but beyond that, some projects get a little bit more tricky and fun!
Today we have some games and fun educational apps to help keep little minds active during summer break. Brush up on little math skills and put geometry to practice all while having fun. Don't worry, we've thrown in a few games that are fun for the sake of fun, too. Don't miss out on these free app deals!
Summer is halfway over here, and I don't know about you but at my house we've reached the "but I'm bored" portion of our holiday. If it's too hot to go out and you need to find something to do inside, why not check out this list of free apps? We've got some Pacca Alpaca, some fun apps from PBS Kids, and one of my favorite apps of ALL TIME (check it out...I can't believe it's free!!) plus much, much more!
Bottom line: OurPact can help parents easily block internet and specific applications from their child's device. Setting schedules for usage can give parents control and peace of mind without having a child bargain for extra time or take advantage of situations, or parents can make changes remotely (and immediately) when a situation warrants. This is a powerful and easy-to-use tool to help parents control device usage.
OurPact is completely free.
