Fun Apps!

Of course, Grandparents Link believes there is no substitute for reading to your grandchildren. However, there are a lot of fun, educational, and entertaining apps that you can enjoy together. Limit the amount of time that you spend on playing with the apps. Make it a treat, and when you finish playing with an age-appropriate app, read a book.  It’s all about moderation and using common sense.

 

Here are a few recommendations we think are worthy:
