Android AND Apple Free App of the Day: Counting with the Very Hungry Caterpillar!

I'm all about downloading educational apps for the kids, especially when they are FREE! If you or your kids are big Eric Carle fans then you are going to LOVE this app. It's called Counting with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and it's FREE today for Apple and Android users.

What I love about this app is the 5 levels. Amazon doesn't list appropriate ages but my 4 and 5 year olds love it. Level 1 is perfect for 2 year olds and Level 5 was perfect for my four year old. It was a little bit easy for my five year old but they both enjoyed all the games. It's perfect for any child that is familiar with the story and are working on counting skills! Head to Amazon or the iTunes to download it before the price goes back up! :)

Product Features:
  • LEVEL 1: Counting. This level teaches cause and effect and introduces the concept of counting.  Kids will also practice with the names and symbols for numbers one through twelve.
  • LEVEL 2: Vocabulary.  In this level kids identify fruit and food within a larger set of different foods, deciding which food to eat and what to leave untouched.
  • LEVEL 3: Quantity.  Identify a specific amount of fruit and food within a larger set.  For example, see twelve plums but only eat five.  Unlike Level 1, kids can’t just tap everything they see!
  • LEVEL 4: Addition.  Count and eat a specific number of different foods within a set.  For example: See five apples, two slices of salami, one ice-cream cone, and four lollipops. Children must eat just one lollipop and two apples.  When they do, they will learn they took three bites: this introduces the basic concept of addition.
  • LEVEL 5: The Game.  Now put all your skills together–with a time limit!  Fruits and foods keep sliding into view while kids try to eat what the Caterpillar asks them to find. There is only one minute, so think (and eat) fast!  *Points are awarded for each correct food that is found, reinforcing basic addition skills.
