Jack and Jill Preschool Adventure (best free Android apps for kids)
These kind of apps are my favorite: early learning apps with NO ads, NO in-app purchases and NO external links. It means my girl can play without interruption and I can rest assured my credit card is safe! The other great things about these games are that verbal instructions and feedback are provided every step of the way and stickers are awarded for completed mini-games, so the app tracks progress to a certain extent. Jack and Jill's Preschool Adventure has a range of activities to help practice early concept skills and for the low low price of FREE, this one is definitely recommended.
Jack and Jill's Preschool Adventure was recently reviewed on Smart Apps For Kids and given 3.5 stars. This is what Kelli had to say: "A simple yet somewhat engaging set of games targeting children ages 2-5 to foster skills such as shape recognition and matching."
Children love to dress up characters, which helps them identify with that character. The boy or girl chosen then tackles each of the six mini-games, being rewarded with a present after each one. Colors, shapes, letters and numbers are all covered with matching and multiple choice type of activities. The games are not timed and there are no penalties for wrong answers. There is also no finish to the game as the activities continuously loop through one after the other until the child decides s/he has had enough. The perfect app for a long road trip!
