Family time over the holidays can be a wonderful thing. And if you’re lucky, you’ll get to spend time with nieces and nephews, or grandchildren, while their parents are busy cooking, tending the fire, and generally bustling around entertaining you and others.
So get ready! Here’s a helpful list of interactive apps to share with the children in your life over the holidays. The list was created by four Harvard Graduate School of Education students at the Harvard Family Research Project--Karen Dunham, Laura Alves, Chalatwan Chattrabhuti, and Babe Liberman—who want to get word out. Check out their list of educational apps (PDF) in these categories. (All are free or inexpensive.)
The choices will take you from an Alien Assignment (Fred Rogers Center), to “Creatures of Light” (American Museum of Natural History), to WordGirl Superhero Training (PBS Kids).
Which apps appeal to you? What others would you add to the list? Let us know!
