    App Roundup: Best Apps for Creative Play

    Apps that will Unlock Your Child’s Creativity

    Since your child is old enough to play on a phone or tablet, why not give them an app that’s more stimulating and challenging? There’s a growing trend of fun apps designed for educational and creative play so here’s a few of our favorite games built to encourage, learn, and explore!

    Hakitzu Elite: Robot Hacker (free)

    Hakitzu tackles the seemingly dry task of teaching kids the basics of computer programming by teaching kids howto code while building and battling robots in both single- and multiplayer missions. The game play is fun for all but some reviewers say it skews more toward boys than girls. And while the app is free there there are numerous in-app purchases so make sure your programmer-in-training doesn’t accidentally buy something without your permission.

    Brush of Truth ($1.99)

    Brush of Truth is designed for kids ages 7 or 8 with a strong interest in storytelling.

In addition, with over 20 “decision points” your child can play through the story of the Brush of Truth multiple times without getting bored.
