Kid's Academy $100 Amazon Gift Card #Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post, but I would honestly recommend Kid's Academy to anyone with small children.


Besides having raised two children of my own, and preparing them each for school, I have also spent years running an in home childcare, where I am always looking for new and exciting ways to teach the children the skills needed to be prepared for school. The apps provided by Kid's Academy are definitely a fun way of teaching children. 

Kid's Academy is all about helping children learn verbal, writing and math skills in an easy and fun manner. Apps such as 123 Tracing and Bingo ABC have been top-50 educational apps in the App Store, and Kid’s Academy has also brought the well-known stories and nursery rhymes The Three Little Pigs and Five Little Monkeys to life with interactive apps. The simple interfaces of the apps allow children to take the reins and play on their own, but the sing-a-longs and other activities are perfect for parent or teacher engagement, as well. Research has shown that singing along with nursery rhymes has cognitive and physical benefits for children. Not only are children learning new words and the context in which to use them, but strengthening tongue and mouth muscles at an early age will help with pronunciation skills.




Kids Academy is hosting an awesome giveaway and all you have to do to enter is click the link below, download the app, and write a review in the App Store.  At the end of August, Kids Academy will randomly choose 2 lucky winners who will each win a $100 Amazon gift card!  



CONTEST RULES:

2.  Write a short honest review on the iTunes App Store. If you have already reviewed this app, simply update your review and you will be entered!

3.  The app is available for download in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and the U.K. and all can enter the giveaway.

4. The last day to enter the giveaway is 8/31.


Enjoy the free app download and good luck!

Apparoo App Of The Week: Blinkbuggy (The baby book reinvented) Get It #Free!

The Apparoo App of the Week posts are sponsored posts, though all information provided is because I truly love this service!




The Apparoo App for this week is Blinkbuggy (The baby book reinvented)



If you are like me, you love to post and share pictures of your kids and/or grandkids on Facebook, but yet we never end up getting the family albums, scrapbooks or baby books kept up to date.  Well now there is an easy alternative! Blinkbuggy is an online baby book that puts all your photos, milestones and those cute stories you want to remember all in one place, and it is as easy as updating your status on Facebook, or Twitter.  You control the privacy settings completely. You can keep it private, link it to social media (where it can even grab the photos you have already posted), or share with anyone you choose!   The years go by super fast, and those photos and memories will disappear even faster, so don't wait another minute...create an enduring, and endearing album with Blinkbuggy online and in print!
