weeLove: All play, no work
A Free App of Activity Ideas for Babies and Toddlers
KNOALA IS TESTED AND APPROVED BOREDOM BUSTERS
Entertaining your little one takes effort and creativity. And like most parents, you probably run through that bag of tricks faster than you can say macaroni mirror. (If your kid could talk, he’d tell you to stop waving keys in his face. #OverIt.)
In need of fresh ideas for fun? Download Knoala, a free app for parents, packed with developmental activities to enjoy with your kids. Filter activities by age (infant to late preschooler), location (indoor, outdoor, bed, meal, bath, car), activity type (cognitive, artistic, emotional, motor, sensory, language), supplies, and length of time. Then scroll through development-boosting ideas created by Knoala or submitted by other parents. Users can follow a growing community of parents, submit activities, and share on social media.
Aside from clever, imaginative play ideas, Knoala’s Story Starter section helps parents whip up wacky tales to impress even the most discerning tot. (Tonight, we told a story about a hungry chicken who travels around the world.) The app also offers short, kid-friendly videos, perfect for when you’re in preventative meltdown mode at the supermarket.

As a busy working parent of a toddler, I’m desperately in need of apps like this, and I was recently very happy to find out they exist.

I tried to download this and got the message “The item you’ve requested is not currently available in the U.S. store.” 🙁
Oh no! We’ll look into it and if it’s no longer available, we’ll be sure to take it down.
