Both of my kids love great apps for the iPad. It wasn’t until recently that my two year old showed interested in preschool games and now he gets on the iPad daily to play a game or two and he loves dancing to music. I love having it during church service; it really keeps him quiet and occupied. What a time we are living in! Two year old’s learning, through creativity, with technology. What ways do you inspire kids to learn?
Disney Imagicademy is a new technology based learning family of apps. This exciting new brand combines Disney characters my kids love with educational activities that experts recommend for kids ages 3-8. There are currently three apps available in the Imagicademy brand: Mickey’s Magical Math World, Mickey’s Magical Arts World and Disney Imagicademy Parents. These apps are available for the iPad only at this time.
We were sent a code to try out Mickey’s Magical Arts World this last week and I am just going to tell you now that my kids both LOVED it.
Mickey’s Magical Arts World
There are five main areas of learning in Mickey’s Magical Arts World:
- Mickey’s Sketch Artist
- Donald’s Costume Play
- Mickey’s Music Maker
- Minnie’s Art-chitect
- Pluto’s Crafty Creator
My son who is two stuck with Mickey’s Sketch Artist this week to color, or his version of coloring. He figured it out pretty quickly and had a good time in that learning world.
My daughter, on the other hand, had to be cut off. I do place limits on her technology use, even the educational apps. So after 45 minutes of this app I told her to continue her creations the next day. She loved all the learning worlds. Her favorite? Minnie’s Art-chitect – she loved being able to design buildings with Minnie and change windows, doors, and colors.
Disney Imagicademy Parents
I love that there is a free Disney Imagicademy Parents app that allows me to see what the kids have created. How cool is that? There is also resources, articles and tips to help your child learn even more. You can also connect with the Disney Imagicademy community. You can share your ideas and contribute to creative community!
When I log in to this app I can see that my daughter has earned 13 pins so far in the Mickey’s Magical Arts World. My favorite part of this app for parents are the creative ideas I can do with my kids. For example, there are directions for a toilet paper caterpillar craft and even a grocery store hunt. My kids would love to do these activities. I love the idea inspiration.
Download these free apps* today! You won’t be disappointed and your kids will love them!
