Guilt Free Apps for Your Family

Are you heading out on an end of summer vacation?

Load up these apps—that encourage creativity—on your smart phone or tablet and feel a little less guilty about how much time your child spends glued to the screen while you’re traveling.

These come from Roberta Zeff  in the New York Times Well Family Newsletter and are the recommendations from Warren Buckleitner (the editor of Children’s Technology Review and senior fellow at the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media).
