16 Award Winning Apps for Kids

16 award winning apps for kidsWhile I may be against TVs in Minivans, I do appreciate the power a fully charged iPad can have in calming the masses before a long road trip.

The kids get bored in less than 30 minutes, it’s a fact. So as our family packs up for our annual road trip to Montana and the 5+hr drive, I’ve made sure the boys’ iPad is fully stocked with fresh games to play.

Finding the right apps for your kids is never an easy task, I like to have a stash on hand that both of us enjoy to play, but those are more games than educational.

The first annual Cynopsis Kids !magination Awards were handed out earlier this month in NYC. It honored all sorts of media campaigns, including picking out the best Educational Apps, Preschool Apps, and those for grade school kids.

Here are the winners and nominees:

    Seriously, only a 5hr drive…What is wrong with a coloring book and crayons, or regular books or a favorite toy? Try teaching your kids to use their imaginations to keep themselves busy instead of just going for the video games…We travel almost 2000 miles straight through quite often with a 5 year old and we don’t have to resort to video games to keep her busy…We just stock the car with coloring books, books and other toys, or ask her questions or teach her things about the stuff we see along the way…There are plenty of other ways to keep your child occupied than just expecting an electronic babysitter…

    We do have books, and crayons, and toys, and cars, and all sorts of things to keep our kids entertained. The apps supplement for long rides and are not an everyday occurrence.

    My child is always coloring or drawing at home or in the car when we go on short trips so i think an ipad would be a nice supplement to the everyday nor as long as the child is not on the ipad all the time. My son plays on the computer and once a week i let him play a video game other than that he is to use his imagination with legos,toys etc. So i see nothing wrong with a 5 hr trip using these apps.
