April 2014 Newsletter

Many households across America are gearing up for the annual spring recess from school, when our little ones are home for a week (sometimes longer) or we pack the whole family up and head off for a vacation. With no big travel plans this spring break for us, we’re looking forward to many day trips to local museums and parks, lots of time playing outside in the sunshine and catching up on some errands for the kids. Spring Break is a great time to pause from the hustle and bustle of the school year and spend some nice quality time with the kids, who are just growing up so incredibly fast these days.

In between all of the outdoor fun, I’m sure there will also be lots of requests to play on the iPad. While we’re usually pretty busy with after-school activities and homework, spring break will provide some extra time to play with new apps and old favorites. We hope that all of our readers enjoy a fun and safe spring break whether you’re home with your families or venturing out on vacations!

Below are some of our favorite apps we’ve reviewed from the past few weeks. Check them out and be sure to download them before the little ones are home!
