PBS Parents Play & Learn
By PBS KIDS
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
PBS’ first app designed specifically for parents, PBS Parents Play & Learn provides more than a dozen games parents can play with their kids, each themed around a familiar location – including at the grocery store, at home, in the kitchen, and many more.
The bilingual (English/Spanish) PBS Parents Play & Learn App makes it easy for parents to seize upon those daily “teachable moments” through theme-based interactive games and simple hands-on activities that connect math and literacy skills to everyday experiences.
The app is designed to build on a child’s natural curiosity about his or her everyday world and to encourage dialogue between kids and parents. Each game comes with a parent note that provides information about the math and literacy skills woven into the game and suggestions for effective ways to interact with a child while playing the game to maximize the learning experience.
--13 interactive games
--parent notes with each game
--52 easy hands-on activities
--a free-play sticker area
--weekly push notifications with more ideas for parents
--completely bilingual (English/Spanish)

Great suggestions for parents to have educational fun with their kids!
I love every suggestion in this app, and the fact that it focuses on having fun in ordinary, everyday places. Sometimes parents need a little help brainstorming fun ways to engage with their children. Look no further than this app!
Fun, more variety, annoying red number
We like the games. Well done, educational and fun. More variety would be nice. The ideas for things you can do are nice. The number that tells me there are new things to see is hard to clear. I don't know where the 14 items are. 9 were under the main screen ! I don't like the red number on my phone, nor do I have time to figure out where more notices are hidden.
Love the PBS Apps! This one is great too
Thanks to PBS for making fantastic, fun and engaging apps for families. Love the parent and child play-together opportunity this app gives instead of just handing your phone off to your kids.
