Every time I turn around, one of my kids is sneaking our iPad. They are addicted to apps and it constantly surprises me how techie my kids have become. There is always controversy around allowing kids to spend too much time (if any) on video games, iPads and iPhones. My kids have had Nintendo DS’s for a while but they still would prefer to play with the iPad.
We’ve recently downloaded a bunch of apps from Ruckus Media. These Ruckus Readers are fabulous and Lauryn loves using the iPad to read stories and play games. Do names like “My Little Pony”, “Crayola” and “Transformers” sound familiar? What if your kids were able to use your iPad to actually learn to read? Your kids can download their own e-books and have their own online bookshelves full of their favorite stories. There are even Sea World books that will teach your kids all about creatures of the ocean.
If you are interested in learning more, I will be hosting a Ruckus Reader event on Sunday, May 20th. I would love for you to stop by and check out these amazing apps and learn how parents can be involved in actually bringing technology into your children’s lives in a positive way.
Bring your kids and experience the Zimmer Museum and all it has to offer. It will be fun and educational way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
I was provided with complimentary iPad apps and am receiving compensation to host the Ruckus Reader Media Event at the Zimmer Museum. My opinions about the apps are my own and was not required to write about them or the event. I really hope to see you on Sunday!
