The countdown is on! Halloween in a mere 25 days away. Have your Halloween preparations begun yet? We’re still in the middle of a hot debate on costumes over here… and good Halloween apps. This time of year lots of holiday related apps start to pop up. Most of them are garbage. So what’s worth the download? Well, here are a few apps that are worth checking out.
2. Halloween Pumpkin Carver. This Halloween app is ridiculously simple… and addictive. I downloaded it for my kids to get them to hush while I finished some grocery shopping and ended up playing it for 15 minutes later that night. Use your finger to carve a pumpkin! What’s not to love? All the Halloween fun of Jack-O-Lanterns without the pumpkin guts! Free.
4. Dress Up Halloween. I liked this Halloween app and so did my kindergartner. Basically, you choose the character’s costume and dress him/her from a set of bodies, hats, eyes, hair, clothes and other features. It’s a great exercise in sequencing, as you can layer the “stickers”. Also tests matching skills. I wish the costume pieces would “snap into place” when you get close to their intended positions, as it would help my two-year-old play. Free in the Play Store,
