5 Fun, Free Educational Apps For Kindergartners

With my son starting Kindergarten soon, I have been obsessing about making sure he is developmentally and academically where he needs to be. Even though kids are studying more and playing less, I want to show my son that learning can be fun, and it does not necessarily have to happen in the old traditional way of sitting behind a desk jotting down notes.

I have scoured the app store in search for applications that best suit him and needs while allowing him to be creative and use his imagination.

Below are five free applications which allow kids to learn while having fun.
