Have you ever bought an app for your iPad that you think your kids are just going to love only to have them play with it once and then never again? Yeah, so have we.
We’ve used apps in our home preschool before and while we have found a few that we’ve loved, most were played with once or twice and then forgotten.
As my preschooler gets older, I’ve found that y search for apps has gotten much harder since I don’t just want a game for him to play but rather something that will engage his mind and his imagination.
It may seem like a bit of a tall order but boy, did we hit the jackpot with the new Mickey’s Magical Arts World!
With this app, Disney has combined the characters and stories that your children know and love with a research-driven curriculum that will fascinate and challenge your child.
The maker of Mickey’s Magical Arts World, Disney Imagicademy, is an all new educational brand designed specifically to inspire a natural love of learning and encourage kids (ages 3-8) to learn by creating, making and doing.
To say that my preschooler was excited would be a bit of an understatement. He has always loved Mickey Mouse and to see him and all of his clubhouse friends right there on the screen made him instantly fall in love. And, of course, I love all of the educational aspects of the app!
It covers everything from basic math concepts and creative arts to reading and so much more.
He absolutely loved designing buildings with Mickey and the gang and spent ages counting out all of the windows and I think the learning to draw area is one of his favorites 🙂
A lot like prewriting practice, this area gives your child lines to follow to create their pictures thus working on their fine motor skills as well as their hand-eye coordination. When their picture is complete, they’ll get to watch it come to life right there in front of their eyes!
And of course, spending some time playing music with different dancing instruments is a lot of fun too 🙂
Overall, we are in love with this app! Finding ways to interest and engage them is what will ultimately build your preschooler’s love of learning and Disney Imagicademy is now making that a whole lot easier!
Parents! Want to give this app a try? You can download Mickey’s Magical Arts World for free from the iTunes store (there are in-app purchases) along with the all-new Disney Imagicademy Parents, a fantastic app for parents that allows you to follow your child’s progress through the app, check out their latest creations, and share their accomplishments with family and friends!
