Kids Academy 123 Tracing App

Do you have apps on your devices for your kids?  I have a couple. One that we just started using is the 123 Tracing app from Kid’s Academy.  It is designed for younger kids, and allows them to catch fireflies as they trace numbers.  It not only helps them to form the numbers nicely, but teaches them the proper way to write them and encouraged tidy penmanship.

You can download the Lite (free) version of the app on iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.

The Lite version will allow you to trace numbers 1-5.  After that, the paid version is just $2.99, which is cheap for an an app that helps with handwriting!  Trust me, you’ll want handwriting to be fun!

Of course, I have to try out everything before I let the kids play with it.  I had to laugh, because as I sat with my phone balanced on my leg, tracing with my right index finger and holding the camera upside down in my left hand to take pictures, my husband looked at me like I was little bit silly.  Of course, my laughter had nothing to do with how many times I didn’t get the fireflies on the first try, because my number formation (and my handwriting) is the pits.  I’m hoping my kids won’t follow in my penmanship!

My kids enjoy programs that allow them to collect things, so the fireflies in the jar is right up their alley. 

Kid’s Academy was founded in 2011 and specializes in developing apps, such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC, that are educational and fun for kids.  They’ve also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps.
