More app fun for kids this week, with Kids Connect the Dots. We have the lite (free) version, which Pebble loves playing. While it is recommended for four to seven year olds, 2.5 year old Pebble has no trouble thanks to the optional hints.
For example, if the child doesn’t click on the correct number within a few seconds, the next correct number is highlighted, giving them a hint. The hint setting is optional: you can have it set to show hints ‘always’, ‘after three seconds’ or ‘never’.
The app also counts each number out loud, which is great for reinforcing number and number pattern. Pebble can count count out loud to thirteen, and is starting to know a few other ‘teen numbers too.
If you have an older child who would enjoy a challenge you can change settings so that there is no voice over for numbers. You can also change from a numerical dot to dot to alphabetical (thumbs up for both upper and lower case!).
The full version ($AUD2.88) includes a child lock and all 100 puzzles, including the 25 available for free. This review is based on the Android app, however it is also available from the Apple App Store.
I’d love to know what technology your kids are having fun with right now. Do tell!
