As a homeschooling mom of 4, I've come to rely on certain tricks to keep everyone entertained without zonking into mindless TV. One of my favorites is the apps on my phone & our Kindle Fire. I have Zoodles installed on all of our devices & love it! To know more about this amazing parental control system, check out the Zoodles review from my friend Heather at MyHusbandAteAllMyIceCream.com. I am so grateful she told me about it when I was complaining about the twins changing my keyboard settings (nothing like hitting send and realizing you just texted gibberish) for the thousandth time.
While they are playing with a device, I don't want them going into that mindless state you hit with some games, so we installed a ton of educational apps. Being the frugal momma I am, I couldn't imagine paying for them when there are so many free ones available! Because we are Android users with younger children, I had to get a little help with some apps for you Apple fans and parents of older children. Here are 25 of the best FREE educational apps for kids we found!
