My kids go through phases of playing certain apps until they feel like they have mastered them. Disney produces apps that my kids can't get enough of. They put your favorite characters together with fun games that also educate. This month Disney released two new apps, for the kids there is Mickey's Magical Math World and for parents Disney Imagicademy: Parents.
Let's start with Mickey's Magical Math World. It's a space journey with Mickey Mouse and his buddies, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Daisy. They fly out in their space ship to the space station where they are helping take care of the aliens. This app does have in-app purchases so if you don't want to keep backing your child out of the buy now screen, turn the restrictions on so they can't even click on it.There are different areas of the space station that you get to play different games in. It is all Math centered so you'll see counting, shapes, addition and problem solving.
We went for a ride through space and followed the numbers and shapes to pick up more aliens. We had to count the proper number too.
My kids liked Donald's sleep walking aliens the best. You had to clear the path of the sleeping aliens to get them safely to their beds. A few of the levels have you recycling which is an added bonus.
Kids can explore, recognize and identify shapes with Mickey's Rocket Build; Play with numbers and patterns within Minnie's Robot Playground; Ponder early number concepts with Donald's Alien Number Line; Explore Counting to 10 and early problem solving with Donald's Sleepwalking Aliens and experiment with shapes, patterns and sorting skills with Goofy.
Now let's talk about the new Disney Imagicademy: Parents. It serves as a parent’s ‘go-to’ resource to connect with the Imagicademy community and gather information that can be used to engage with their child in meaningful ways. It's set up in an almost Pinterest style with big images and a quick summary to browse through easily. I like to consume my content like this. When something catches my eye, then I click. I'm just a visual person I guess.
The app is a great way to answer the question, “What can I do today with my child?'” Imagicademy-inspired activities are designed to help spark creativity and encourage imaginative learning. “Disney Imagicademy: Parents” also serves as a portal into children’s Mickey's Magical Math World, where parents can see their child’s latest creations, provide encouragement with a virtual “high five” and share their accomplishments with family and friends. How cool is that!?
Both of these apps are available on your iPad and offers in-app purchases. Your kids are going to love it and you are to find some AWESOME activities to do with your little ones.
