Apps for Kids: AzaWhistle and Alphabet Rockers

While I’ve been busy moving, two friends have debuted fun educational apps just for kids (and adults will likely get a kick out of them as well) over the past several weeks. Check them out!

Yogini, writer and all-round ace person Leslie Hendry developed Azawhistle to encourage “clean living in our homes, hearts, backyards, and around the world.”

The app uses yoga, meditation and simple acts of cleanliness to teach and inspire children to be organized, responsible, and conscious of their impact on their personal environment.”

One of my favorite Bay Area music artists Kaitlin McGaw has applied some of her genius to an aoo she created with her Alphabet Rockers urban pop/hip-hop project. The new Alphabet Rockers app uses music to help kids learn about coins and shapes. How cool is that?
Both AzawhistleKids and Alphabet Rockers Apps are available via iTunes. Let the downloading begin.
