Entertaining Kids on the Go
Holiday season is upon us, and it's time for us to jet off to sun ourselves or drive across country to see some of the most beautiful places that the country has to offer! While this in itself should be tonnes of fun, when you're taking children with you it can certainly be challenging.
Holiday season is upon us, and it’s time for us to jet off to sun ourselves or drive across country to see some of the most beautiful places that the country has to offer! While this in itself should be tonnes of fun, when you’re taking children with you it can certainly be challenging.
While your holiday will be all about running and playing in the sun and having lots of fun, there’s no harm in investing in a couple of apps you can pop on a tablet to entertain your little ones on the journey, so today we’ve got some great recommendations for you.
The Best Apps for Entertaining Kids on the Go
Amazon Prime Video
While Amazon Prime is a subscription service, when you’re subscribed you can download the things you’re watching (as long as your subscription is still active) to watch without an internet connection. This is brilliant for children as there’s lots of children’s TV shows on Amazon Prime to watch, and makes for a great couple of hours of entertainment for little ones.
Kindle/iBooks/Google Play Books
These apps are all largely interchangeable, but if you have a little one who loves to read than any one of them is a great addition to your tablet to keep them entertained throughout your journey. You can download as many books as you want, many of them free or very affordable, without them taking up any unnecessary space.
This isn’t a specific app recommendation, but a group of them. Ketchapp games are fun, easy to play and pull you in to try and beat your very own score! None of them are exactly groundbreaking, but the style of gameplay is perfect for children and there’s no need for an Internet connection to play them.
Children love music too, and Spotify Premium is a brilliant idea to entertain children on the go. You can build a brilliant playlist that they’ll love, then download to your device so you don’t need to worry about an Internet connection, pop it on and enjoy either as a whole family or plug in some headphones for them to enjoy alone.
