Colorful Fishing (best Android apps for kids)
We have featured a couple of board games recently because they are so much fun to play with family. But what makes a board game app a Smart App exactly? Games such as this one, Colorful Fishing, are smart because they teach toddlers about taking turns. Not only do children get practice identifying colors, but they also learn patience and sportsmanship as well as strategic thinking. You wouldn't think so much learning could come out of such a simple app!

Designed to be played with two or three players, Colorful Fishing is a simple collecting game, using a spinning wheel to determine which fish shall be collected next. Players take turns spinning the wheel and acting out the instruction on the section the pointer lands on. The options of instructions are: put a particular color fish in the bucket, exchange a fish with another player, change the color of a fish, choose any color fish to collect, collect more than one fish or miss a turn.
A great app to play while waiting at an appointment or as a "time with mommy" reward. Little children will enjoy spinning the wheel to try their luck and get a thrill when they can exchange a fish for one of another player's. They may get a little frustrated at the end trying to collect those last two fish, however. Available with English or Russian verbal instruction.
