Get ready for an exciting day at the beach with Grandma's Beach Fun! This latest app from developer Fairlady Media takes kids for some fun under the sun with well-designed games, funny activities, and real-life educational videos.
Fun Under the Sun
Grandma's Beach Fun evokes the joys of summer by offering seven educational games inspired by activities on the beach. Guided by the friendly Grandma character, kids can pick which items to take to the beach, discover rhymes in the sky, create art using shells, match up the items under colorful umbrellas, learn to count as they pick coconuts, solve word puzzles, and play with sea critters in the tide pool. They can also go waterskiing with Grandpa, create a spectacular fireworks display, and watch fascinating videos about beach wildlife and water sports.
Cycling endlessly, the games provide a seamless play experience. This means that the app will automatically go back to the first game once the last game has been completed. The problems are randomly generated, though, so the gameplay is never exactly the same. Parents can choose which games are included in the rotation from the Settings menu on the main screen.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Grandma's Beach Fun is perfect for kids ages 5-9. More than just exciting, it's also educational: as kids cycle through the mini games, they practice a number of skills ranging from math (addition through 12), literacy (read, spell, and identify rhyming words), creativity, memory, and even life skills. The gentle Grandma is the perfect guide, providing encouragements and instructions throughout the app.
Grandma's Beach Fun has no third-party ads and no in-app purchases. Links that take the user outside the app are secured behind a parental gate. The app doesn't require an Internet connection to use.
Things I Like
If your kids love anything remotely related to the beach, Grandma's Beach Fun is sure to be a hit. Kids will love the friendly Grandma, the colorful graphics, and the various mini games. Parents, on the other hand, will love that the app helps kids build important skills even during the holidays.
As always with Grandma and Grandpa apps, many amusing features are available throughout the gameplay. For example, kids can tap the screen to give Grandma high-fives after completing the games. In another activity, they can also put on mesmerizing displays of fireworks simply by dragging their finger around the screen. This last activity is my favorite, and I can tell you that both kids and adults will love it, too.
Grandma's Beach Fun adds another excellent app to the beloved series from Fairlady Media. Just in time for summer, this colorful collection of games will appeal to elementary school-age kids. As kids play, they also practice a number of valuable skills, which makes this an excellent app for preventing the dreaded summer slide.
