IPhone Apps For 2 Year Old

Yes, my son Anthony understands how to use my iPhone better than my parents or grandmothers.

It’s no surprise. This generation of kids are born with technology, and one day will laugh at old machines from our past as we once did at those in history books we read in school.

I’m an advocate of it. I loved technology in my classroom with my 4th graders. I’m thrilled to share it with Anthony!

So…here’s a list of his top 5 apps that he plays with right now.

1. Cash Cow Lite ( I swear he just likes the music and graphics).

* Count up the coins that have to be next to each other in a group to total up to the dollar and cents amount that the Cash Cow needs. Once task is accomplished, purchase items for the cow’s farm.

2. Fish School

* Colorful graphics with fish that make up the shapes of numbers, letters, and shapes…great classical music too. Many times Anthony has fallen asleep to this during the day. πŸ™‚ There is a matching game, a game for finding differences, and then recognition of the letters, numbers, colors, and shapes.

3. Old MacDonald

* Sort of like Wheel of Fortune. There is a spinning wheel of animals. Click on the ones that belong on the farm and they are transferred there. He then has to move them to the right spot on the screen (pond, pen, grass, etc). If the animal doesn’t belong (like a dinosaur), the animal gets moved off by Old MacDonald!

4. Wheels on the Bus

* The app goes through the song and has different scenes for each verse. It even has an option for singing in spanish, french, or (yay!) italian. Actually, you can sing/record your own version as well.

5. Β Learn Colors

* I swear this is how Anthony learned his colors back in December. This app is so colorful and it has a little child’s voice on it that calls out the color. Anthony has to tap the color she says. Then it makes a little music. He picked this one up really fast! There are different levels too…so it starts out with just a split screen of 2 colors. Then you can advance to level to 3, 4, or even 6 colors I believe. Starts with primary and secondary colors then adds in the neutrals, etc.

He has three folders full of his educational games on my phone. These are his “faves” right now.

What are your child’s favorites?
