Summer is the time for road trips and family vacations. As parents we try to do everything we can to keep our little ones happy in the car and plane! Kristin gave such great advice for road trips on Monday. We love a good iphone or ipad app that will keep our kids busy and quiet for longer than 5 minutes! I have to admit that we have tried an array of apps and some have been BAD and others have been GREAT! Here are five applications that both you and your kids will love! We are big fans of BOB Books and were thrilled when we found they had BOB apps! They have several different apps but we use Reading Magic Lite and love it!

Crayola Lights, Camera & Color! It is a fun app that both my kids and I have fun using! You are able to snap a picture or use one that is already in your library, you vaccum the color out of the picture and the kids get to color it!

PBS Kids is an awesome app and especially great for the ipad! (it can be used on the iphone as well). Your kids will be able to watch all of their favorite PBS Kids shows!

Teach me Toddler and Teach me Kindergarten are two apps that I absolutely adore for my kids! They both could play them for hours!

Lego App 4+ is one of Dylan's favorite games to play on my phone! He loves buiding his own trucks and seeing it come to life and than picking up cargo! It is an interactive puzzel that it is a lot of fun!

 What are your kids favorite apps?
