As parents, we love to laugh about how kids come running in the room at 6 am on a Saturday when all we want to do is sleep. Better yet, what about when we are trying to fold/put away laundry or cook dinner and they are constantly asking us to play tea party or watch them do the latest dance?
The story of my life.
With young kids (and sometimes even older ones), it isn’t always easy to find activities to keep them busy for a just a few moments while you get things done.
The struggle for me has been finding an activity that not only will they love but that is age appropriate and allows them to exercise/strengthen their cognitive skills.
My 3 & 5-year-old love to play board games and do brain puzzles. But honestly, I can’t always sit down with them and do those things. We do a lot of fun brain games around the home; its one of our favorite activities as a family. But it can also be very time to consume for me, so I knew that it was time to find another way to allow them to continue to do their favorite activities while allowing me the chance to “adult” in other ways around the home.
Two apps that I have found that the girls love are from Highlights Hidden Pictures Puzzles and Hidden Pictures Puzzle Town. Hidden Pictures is a favorite that is now available in digital that provides high-quality content that parents will love while providing kids with lots of fun and challenging games.
Hidden Pictures Puzzle Town is great for preschoolers ages 3-6 years. As a parent, I enjoy how this app helps to promote and enhance pre-literacy, pre-math, and problem-solving skills, as well as:
● PreschoolHidden Pictures™ puzzles that promote early vocabulary development
● Look and Look Again scenes that encourage letter recognition and critical thinking
● Mazes that strengthen problem-solving and fine motor skills
● Match Maker activities that build early math skills through classification and visual memory practice
● Picture Mix-ups that improve cognitive flexibility and short-term memory skills
My older children (ages 10 & 14) absolutely love Hidden Pictures Puzzles. I love how my ten-year-old can rotate through 45+ puzzles (with new ones added weekly) and not get bored! This interactive version of Hidden Pictures is not only for kids! There are times when I find myself playing as well!
