ArtGig Apps is providing a free download of their educational Alien Buddies iOS app for ages 3-6 on Friday, August 2. This popular app is designed to reinforce early learning of colors, shapes, numbers, and letters through matching, puzzle, dot to dot, and sticker games that teach fine motor skills through play. Emily Vanek of Colorado Moms and parent of 3 boys, says “Alien Buddies is HUGE in this house!”
What makes it great? The variety of levels for preschoolers through kindergarteners ensures that learning tasks match their skill level. The visual and audio cues not only provide a different way to engage with content to reinforce learning but having the variety mesmerizes as they learn along with colorful aliens in the space-themed app.
Here’s a look at the skills that each game teaches:
- Matching helps teach colors, shapes, letter and number recognition.
- Puzzle reinforces problem solving and shape recognition
- Dot to dot focuses on sequential counting and fine motor skills
- Stickers provide creative free play and fine motor skill development thanks to over 40 stickers and 8 landscapes
If you happen to miss the free download on Friday, Alien Buddies is normally $1.99 and is well worth the money for your preschooler or kindergartener to play on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod.
