Teaching kids how to organize and put away their things is an age-old struggle. I know I grow tired of telling my kids every day to not only put their things away, but to put them in the right places. Mouse Tales is a new app that helps teach preschool aged kids all about picking up and organizing things around the house.
Mouse lives in a huge tree house with 8 different rooms. Your child will learn how to clean up their space by helping Mouse clean his. Each room has a different task to complete that requires them to tap and drag different items to the appropriate spot. In some of the rooms, the spots are indicated by a shadow in the spot that is the same shape as the object. Some of the tasks simply require the player to locate the items and place them in a container. Whatever the game, they are easy enough for your young children to do independently; having fun while learning how to clean.
I thought this app was cute and practical to use as a teaching tool. It is definitely an app for younger children as it offers very little in the way of a challenge for older children. The illustrations are colorful and appealing to young children. I did feel like the narration sounded a little strange, glitchy and was slightly difficult to understand at times. This app is a Free initial download that comes with 3 rooms to play in. You can unlock the other 5 rooms for an additional $1.99 in app. Overall, I would say that this is a good free app and should provide some entertainment and hopefully a bit of a cleaning teaching opportunity for young children and toddlers.
