Fun, Educational Apps for Summer Learning

This article, entitled "Fun, Educational Apps for Summer Learning," comes from Pam Tauscher, MomsEveryday correspondent from Madison, WI.

Want to turn your electronics into learning devices? There are apps that actually don't feel like homework.

Check out Presidents vs. AliensTM where kids use information about past presidents or historical events to fling presidential heads at aliens.

Try Sound Uncovered from the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco. Kids record sounds, modify recordings and even test your hearing so you can find out, "how old are my ears?"

Practicing a foreign language? Try MindSnacks where you need quick reflexes to play and vocabulary words to keep your character alive.

If your child is fascinated by dinosaurs, check out Dino Walk and spend time with creatures that roamed the Earth long ago and watch the continents split.

With Math Bingo, you can get rid of the old flash cards and practice adding, subtracting and multiplication to earn cartoon bugs for bingo.
