Save The Day (best free Android apps for kids)
TinyTap creates apps that turn moments into games. This is a simple app designed to help very young children identify the role of helpers in our community. Seven scenes are presented with situations that need a community helper to Save The Day. A mobile phone shows the options and the user simply needs to tap the right community helper. A great way to begin conversations about safe behaviour with your child, this is definitely one to have on your Android device.
As children reach school age, they begin to wonder where their place is in the world. Kindergarten curriculum normally includes a "Who Am I?" theme that begins with finding out about the body, and then broadens out to include the family, and then the community. Different roles in the community are highlighted, especially ones that will provide some kind of protection for children. At this age, children need to be with a responsible adult, and if they get lost, we teach them to find a community helper. Save The Day reinforces who those people are and what their job is.
This app could be used as a launching pad to have those discussions with your child, to teach them how to use your phone to dial Emergency Services, to meet people in these roles in your local community and to create your own book about people in your community. You could even use another TinyTaps app to create your own interactive book about people and places in your local area that are safe places for your child to go if they get lost. A well presented app, with no ads or in-app purchases and definitely a bargain for free!
