3.5 Technology: Free Educational Apps for Kids

Here is a very large list of free apps for Android and iPad in categories such as science, language (English and others), and math. Some individual listings have as many as 50 apps! If you have mobile devices, they can entertain and educate while you are waiting around–or you could get radical and have them take a book!

3.6 Family Fun and Sewing: Classic Games in Fabric

These are instructions for no-sew versions of hopscotch, tic-tac-toe, checkers, and dominoes, but one could always sew them. Since they are mostly composed of straight lines, an experienced sewer should be able to teach basic pattern drafting and sewing instructions for them. Even fairly young children should be able to help cut out and glue the no-sew variety. Why fabric? It’s quiet for one thing!
