Make your smart phone even smarter.
Find My Kids and GPS Tracker Pro will track your kids' whereabouts.
Find My Kids for the iPhone and GPS Tracker Pro for Google Play are free apps that keep track of your kids through their phones. You can even set up alerts that let you know the second they leave the neighborhood.
MamaBear not only tracks your kids' whereabouts, but alerts you when they're tagged in a photo, use bad language, or are being bullied online.
It can even tell you when they're speeding! Find the free app here.
PBS Play & Learn is a great teaching app.
As opposed to the many mindless things kids do on phones or tablets, this free app teaches new skills and vocabulary in a fun and interactive way.
Koi Pond is a super simple and pretty way to entertain the kids.
This basic yet cool app is perfect for entertaining toddlers in restaurants and waiting rooms. Simple to use, kids just touch the screen to create ripples and scare away the fish (or “fishies” in kid-speak).
