Our iPad has seen better days, thanks to Lennox dropping it… but that hasn’t stopped her from using it in a case. She uses it a lot while we travel and I’m always looking for new apps to keep her entertained – whether it’s in the car on a road trip, while on vacation or even on the airplane. Disney is launching a new learning brand created for families with children ages 3-8. The brand aims to engage and enrich children through the power of imagination and creativity. When I heard about this, I wanted to try it out and then share it with you too!
The new app is Mickey’s Magical Math World. In this app, which is currently FREE to download, kids can play with Mickey, Minnie and all their Disney pals while heading out on a space adventure. During their adventure with their Disney friends, they work on a variety of math concepts, such as early problem solving, addition, subtraction, and counting. This app is only currently available on the iPad.
I downloaded this app for Lennox and handed the iPad over to her. I gave her no direction or help with the app and just watched how she used it. She IMMEDIATELY figured it out and was so excited when she saw Minnie Mouse! She went back and forth between many different games and sat and played with it for quite some time. I love that all the games have an underlying math theme, all of which are in line with what she has been learning at school lately.
That app is for the kids, while Disney also has an app for parents that is really great, the Disney Imagicademy: Parents. This app, also FREE to download, is a new app that can be your new “go-to” resource for connecting with other parents with children of similar ages. The IMAGICADEMY is “where imagination rules, creativity is king, and learning comes naturally.” Use this app as a resource to read daily articles, activities and tips to help you be better parents and more involved in your child’s learning and growth.
I really love how this app gives you SO many great ideas. I especially like the printables and craft ideas. There are even recipes for things like clay, craft kits, and more. I look forward to keeping up with the articles and finding some fun activities to do with Lennox. With this new app, parents and families can really be part of a community that celebrates their children’s creativity and curiosity. This app is available on both the iPad and iPhone.
If you have an iPad that your child uses, I would highly recommend that you download the new Disney Imagicademy apps and start watching your child learn! Disney Imagicademy apps are available exclusively for iPad and can currently be found on Apple’s App Store in the Kids, Education and Entertainment categories.
