A few months ago, my most blood-phobic and doctor-phobic child fell off the monkey bars during lunch recess. They hit their head on the bar kids use to climb onto the monkey bars on their way down. As upsetting as the resulting gash on their head was, I was relieved that they didn’t break anything or get a concussion. When I got to school to pick them up, it was clear that the gash on their head required medical attention. I had been watching a friend’s child. She picked up her daughter AND my three other children. I was lucky enough to secure a spot in urgent care. This meant we were seen in a calm environment and probably much more quickly than we would have been seen in the emergency room. My child was terrified of getting stitches. Luckily the doctor was able to use glue instead, and we got everything cleaned up, but I had learned my lesson. We may be a mostly unplugged family, but there are times when it is really useful to have a few apps on your phone for distraction! When I heard a few weeks later about how you can download high quality apps for free on Amazon Underground, I added several to my phone. I will be prepared the next time we have an emergency where we really need a distraction!
Download High Quality Apps for Free with Amazon Underground
There are a lot of free apps out there! Unfortunately, most of them come with ads built in or in-app purchases. I don’t want my children accidentally clicking on ads, and I also don’t want them accidentally purchasing add-ons. Amazon Underground provides access to an incredible catalog of premium, family-friendly apps and games for free. There are no in-app purchases or ads! The app AND in-app purchases are actually free!
I haven’t needed to use my emergency stash of apps yet, but just in case I have a coloring app, a hidden object app, and grade appropriate educational games for Emma (going into 5th grade), Johnny (going into 3rd grade), and Lily (going into 2nd grade). I also have a cute animal puzzle app for Anna (three years old). Here is a screen shot from one of the second grade level games:
