Diverse educational activities
Easy to use interface
Grandma Loves Bugs is full of high quality illustrations and animations that include flying fireflies, fireworks, and other bugs that will keep children engaged as they learn. The background music and sound effects compliment the illustrations well creating an overall entertaining learning environment. The activities in this app are linked together very well. After one activity is complete children automatically move on to the next one without any delay. This set up makes it easy for young children to use, since they don’t have to go back to the main page to move on in the app.
The educational activities in this app are diverse and provide great practice for children in spelling, counting, and identifying specific bugs. The spelling activity requires players to piece a word back together correctly by following the template provided. If the letters are placed out of order, Grandma gives a little feedback encouraging the player to find the next letter as opposed to jumping ahead. There are also two counting activities that ask children to collect a certain number of fireflies in a jar or to identify the jar with a set number of bugs. In addition to the spelling and math activities, children have the opportunity to learn about various bugs by inspecting them with a magnifying glass or watching a video.
Disbursed throughout the educational activities there are also simple and fun games for children to enjoy. Whether they are playing a memory match game, coloring a picture, or seeing how many bugs the baby bird can catch, players will certainly stay engaged and entertained as they learn.
For a limited time, Grandma Loves Bugs is being offered for just under a dollar with the regular price set at just under two dollars. This is a great app for the price as it offers lots of great educational and entertaining material for children to enjoy.
Perfectly safe for children of all ages, Grandma Loves Bugs does not have any social media links or in-app purchases. The other apps by the developer are listed in the “more” area and the developers have done a great job protecting that link so children aren’t likely to get into that area. They have also done a great job making this app easy to use for little ones as there are no complicated instructions required. Parents can allow children to simply play and learn on their own without a lot of assistance.
