Top 5 Educational Apps For Kids

There are many educational resources available to help kids develop and learn. From books to shows to interactive websites, there is no shortage of supply.

According to an experiment conducted by Dragon Box, kids were able to absorb 28 hours of algebra in 5 days using the Dragon Box app! This just reaffirms the assumption that games are one of the best resources to educate young kids.

The simple, structured curriculum of educational apps combined with the portability of a phone or tablet allows your kids to learn anytime, anywhere.

Without further ado here is our top 5 list of educational apps for kids.
