4 fun, educational apps for young learners
Parents are being urged to limit their kids’ screen time, with multiple reports advising them that it’s bad for their developmental health and could lead to obesity and sleeping problems.However, while planting your child in front of a screen for several hours probably isn’t the best idea, there are ways children can actually benefit from using electronic screens, when used the right way.The digital world is growing bigger by the day and it’s becoming increasingly difficult for parents to keep their kids away from smartphones, iPads and computers.It’s important to make sure these devices are being used for the right reasons at a suitable age, and for a reasonable amount of time per day. Limiting screen time to less than two hours a day for kids aged 5-17 is generally recommended, according to the Canadian 24-Hour Movement Guidelines for Children and Youth.When allowing your child to use a smartphone or iPad, why not introduce them to fun, educational apps instead of videos?These apps and games enhance your child’s learning and spark creativity, yet they’re still fun and safe, so your child enjoys using them without thinking it’s ‘study time’.Here are a few fun apps for kids that will keep them occupied and stimulate their brains at the same time.
