First of all, there is so much out there! There are so many good apps, websites, books, etc. that can help you teach your children. You may be a homeschooler (like us), doing a mommy-swap preschool (also us), or you may just want to have fun, educational ways to spend a few minutes with your toddler (you guessed it, us!). You don't have to look far! In reality, it can be a little overwhelming!
So, here are the apps and resources we like best. Please share your favorites in the comments! We love trying out new apps and games!

Don't forget the value of the public library! We love going and getting new books, music, and movies each week. Don't be afraid to branch out and look in different places. We love finding kids' non-fiction books. This week my kids are loving Hurricanes by Gail Gibbons. Tony and I have learned some new facts from it too! There are an almost unlimited supply of good non-fiction books that are great for even the youngest kids! Check out the videos, too. We've been learning a lot from the Magic School Bus series lately. There are all sorts of movies that teach kids about different cultures, science, language, and more!
