Best Apps for Three-Year-Olds
As geek dad to two sons, Philip (4) and Noah (2), I get many questions from other parents about the best iPad apps for their kids. This happens so frequently, I decided to compile a list of recommended iPad apps for one-year-olds and two-year-olds.
Now, I am back with a new list written with three-year-olds in mind. Taking hints from our Best Apps for Kids 2015 list, I organized this list based on each app's use case.
The second installment in the Bramble Berry Tales series that aim to preserve threatened languages. Adapted from a thousand-year-old fairy tale of the indigenous people of British Columbia (Canada), it teaches readers not to judge a book by its cover. Available in several languages including French, Spanish, and Halq’emeylem.
You should also check out the first book in the series: The Story of Kalkalih. Both books have great interactive features and animations that make for an enjoyable reading experience.
An interactive comic book where kids make up their own narration. It allows them to record their own voice, change the pitch for different characters, and create their own plot. It has no language constraints, making it accessible to every family.
If you want to know how Cookie’s adventure ends, check out its sequel: Cookie Next Door ~ Rainy Go Round. Both apps allow juniors to practice their storytelling skills.
An expressive memory matching game that features several unique game modes, such as counting and addition. It has an adjustable AI opponent to entertain players of all ages. Parents should definitely try playing 16 cards in hard mode against Fiete.
Note: Fiete Match is the winner of SEGA’s Gamescom 2013 Big Indie Pitch.
