Good Free App of the Day: Yipy Garden Farm -- Save $2.99 and learn about gardening!


This is a great app for the summer--get out and garden with your kids (or even just plant some beans in a simple pot), then use this app to reinforce the learning. It's a good pick for fine-motor skills, as I found the games to be creatively designed. To pick the carrot, say, it needs more than a tap--the carrot actually has to be pulled up out of the dirt.The app has great graphics, is safe for kids to play and it's overall just pretty adorable.

Start learning about gardening with your kids and support Smart Apps for Special Needs by using our handy download link (iPad/iPhone, FREE for a limited time, regular price $2.99):

I just happened upon this app when searching for an app to share today, but it's a great find! It's in the style of popular apps from Dr. Panda and Toca Boca, with a garden theme. Each gardening activity includes a mini game before starting--whack-a-mole before planting carrots, put the garden tools away (like a puzzle) before working in the greenhouse. 

App play is more open-ended, with no time pressure or scoring, making this app good for younger players as well as those who are too easily frustrated with potential "failure" on games. There are twelve different areas to explore on the farm, making it a great amount of content, even for the regular price of $2.99. And for the even better price of FREE, this is a must-download app.
