#12DaysOfXmas Day 3: Useful Apps for our Preschoolers

We might as well open our eyes to the fact that electronic devices are an inevitable part of our kiddo's lives.  

Rather than just blindly following the "fad", we need to realise that our kids will not respond well to over-control or overly-permissive ways of managing how much or little they consume.  Let's face it, parenting in the digital age will require us some discernment when it comes to selecting what we would be okay with for our little squids.  At least we can in some way assist them to take in what may be more developmentally useful for their spongelike minds.

So, let's make it count with some quality #screentime

Day 3: 10 Educational Apps for Preschoolers

We want these apps to be engaging enough so that you can take some time out to do the necessary things at home, such as going for that all important poo and keep them tikes out of trouble.  However, we also want them to be sufficiently and appropriately occupied with more than the average time waster.

We've taken the liberty to search out and summarise some choice apps that are fun, engaging, age-appropriate, and educational.  Make screentime count!

Popular parenting site ScaryMommy summarised a good number of Apps and provide a tasty description of what they do and lists if it's free.
