Most games on my iPad are divided into mine and my kids' apps. There are very few games that we all play besides Angry Birds. Now I can add Peggle Blast by Electronic Arts to the list. A FREE ball and peg blasting game, the levels increase in difficulty and in features. Players can practice and improve their aim while unlocking new levels and Magical Masters. Each level and Magical Master has something new and exciting to offer. Fun for all ages!
Bottom Line: A very well designed app to target math and math problem solving skills for kids ages 6-8, but fun for older kids, too. Monsters with numbers are combined to equal the sum on a spell card. Potions can be used to manipulate the monster numbers, and any number of combinations is possible. Great for critical thinking!

Both my kids struggled with handwriting, and I'll admit, my own handwriting isn't very legible. I tried various apps and one always stood out: Writing Wizard — Kids Learn to Write Letters & Words by L'Escapadou. When my daughter wanted to learn how to write cursive, I immediately downloaded Cursive Writing Wizard and was not disappointed. Not only are these apps available on Android, there is a free version of each for kids to practice a selection of letters, numbers and words for FREE!
Last year we shared about Elf Dance and Christmas: Starring You!, both completely free JibJab apps for Christmas. Well, this year Elf Dance isn't free anymore, but there's a new app for FREE! Tap and Sing: Christmas by StoryBots. This app is totally FREE, though it does require a parent account (and email), but when set up is done, it's full of silliness and good fun with a musical app.
