SleepBot can help you get back on track before school starts! It's Free! (good free Android apps)

I’m going to admit something to y’all. I am not the best sleeper in the world. I often have trouble getting to sleep and trouble staying asleep once I get there. It’s not been such a huge problem over the summer when our schedules are more flexible and sleeping late wasn’t frowned upon. But I started a new job last week and the kids start school soon, so it’s time to get my act together.

NEW RELEASE Kitchen Scramble - another FREE Disney app! (free Android apps for kids)

Another free app from Disney that takes our total to 36 free Disney apps! What are you getting when you download a Disney app? Great graphics, awesome audio, fantastic fun and characters that children identify with. The gameplay is also intuitive and often includes some incidental learning. Cooking games, such as Kitchen Scramble, exercise children's working memory, give them practice at following directions, decision making and time management. Kitchen Scramble may even inspire your kids to get into the kitchen and cook! Why not challenge your kids to recreate the game recipes in real life.

15 FREE (IAP) Let's Leap Ahead: Friendzy Apps From WS Publishing Group (free educational Android kids apps)

Kids do not want to spend their summer doing homework! Educational apps are going to be the last thing they want to play, unless they are playing with a friend! These apps have been designed to motivate children by providing competition between students.  Both teachers and home educators can register their students, using cyber safe usernames, and monitor their progress. Friendzys (competitions between students) can be created by students by finding friends in Facebook, by Friendzy username, via a text message or via email. The top 100 students of the week are shown on a leaderboard and the last time I checked, Australia had five in the top 10 of the Language Friendzy leaderboard. Just thought you would like to know that. Definitely worth checking out these apps because they have packed so much in and are great educational resources for home and school use.

New Top Pick! Build and fly planes with Build and Play 3D — Planes Special Edition (best Android apps for kids)

Build and play planes

(Disclaimer: I originally reviewed this app over on, and I loved it so much I wanted to make sure y'all knew it was available for Android users, too. This post has been modified to have the links for purchasing the Android version of the app.)

Bottom Line: Another excellent offering from Croco Studios, Build and Play 3D — Planes Special Edition is just what it says — a special edition chock full of personality packed planes for users to build and fly.  Following in the footsteps of the superb Build and Play 3D, this special edition is another Top Pick in my book.
