Good Free App of the Day: Stick Around is FREE for a limited time! Save $3

Stick Around is actually an app that I purchased for full price this past summer. So I was really excited when I realized it had gone free. It's the first time ever that it's gone free, and it's a great app to use to implement learning concepts. It provides a hands-on aspect for kids who benefit from a more kinesthetic method. Whatever the reason, it's a great app, and it's a lot of fun to create some of these options.

Stick Around is a fun app to use, too, so it's fun even for the kids who are spending the time to create a project.

To start downloading Stick Around, (Free, regular price $2.99) please support Smart Apps For Kids and use our download button:

Play, design, and share sorting and labeling puzzles! Stick Around comes with an assortment of puzzles, including ordering decimals and classifying rocks. It's the player's job to drag the stickers from the tray to their correct spots on the background before time runs out.

The best feature of Stick Around is that you can create your very own puzzles in just 3 steps:

1. Use drawing tools and/or import photos to make a background.
