The Supper Club Presents: Apps that are Out of the Ordinary

So many apps are often just the same old ideas re-hashed -- this batch of apps takes old standards to new heights!

There seem to be at least a kajillion kids apps that claim to teach kids their numbers, letters, colors and shapes.  They often do these with memory matching games, puzzles, coloring pages and other mostly uninspiring activities.  Here are a few apps that have incorporated those concepts and used those games in fresh, innovative and exceptional ways.

 For this month's craft, we took a storytime standard (the stick puppet) and made it better with a mouth that opens and closes!  You can see the basic concept here, but I got the idea from the great book Make These Toys: 1-1 Clever Creations using everytday items by Heather Swain (p. 72)
