The Best Apps for Kids this Summer

These entertaining apps for kids will keep your little ones happy and less bored this summer.

It’s official – school’s out for summer and you’re already hearing the whines, groans and incessant, “mom there’s nothing to do…I’m bored,” floating around the living room. You’ve signed them up for summer activities but those don’t start for another two weeks – and they usually don’t last all summer. You’re still working, and your vacation won’t start until the end of the week. When your children are old enough to stay home without a babysitter, you don’t want them bored all day, or to end up trolling for trouble around the neighborhood. Of course you tell them to go outside and play, but we all know how that works with kids these days. So instead of having them plastered to their PlayStation, Xbox or TV for eight hours a day, why not try some educational and fun apps that will keep them happy and entertained?
