You may not know where to start with teaching your children about how to use your phone or tablet. Well I promise they will pick it up faster than you would think and then surpass your knowledge of your device. But here are some easy and fun games to get them started.
One of our favorite beginner phone or tablet user game. This really isn’t a game, but teaches your child about touching your phone and getting a reaction. My boys played with this till they were at least 3. Touch the screen to draw or make shapes.’

Zebra Paint Coloring App
This is one of our favorite coloring apps. It is fun because your child can pick a color and just touch a section to fill it with color. No coloring in the lines just easy fun with lots of diff sheets. Zane likes to color the whole screen one color.

Ant Smasher, Best Free Game
This has always been one of our favorite apps. I first saw it on an iPad and I was so excited to find it on Android. The boys love it. They slowly learned to not touch the bees and they learned about games that you had lives in.
