Our kids love their screen time so it's always nice to have fresh group of apps to keep them educated and entertained when the going gets tough. 

Are you planning a trip with the family but aren't exactly sure how to plan a big family vacation? It can be quite exhausting to outline everything when you take children with you. You have to decide where to stay, how to get there and how your kids will react when you show them a little bit of the world. So, how can you make the most of this journey? Don't worry! Whether you take your family on a relaxing vacation, an active trip or a sightseeing adventure, with these 8 apps and websites you can give your kids the best experience! 

 

1. Wordzine

It shows colorful pictures and when you tap on it, the word is given in English and other languages such as Spanish. With Wordzine your kids can learn German, Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch and Russian.

This app is only available in the App Store.
