Art is really important for our kids; it can help with their emotional development and creativity. It's a way for kids and adults to express themselves.

Apple ipad, or the kindle fire
GREAT EDUCATIONAL TOOLS FOR KIDS!!
I think it’s really important to get kids some form of a learning tablet. With the prices of tablets coming down like crazy, almost everyone can afford to get their child a learning tablet. When I was growing up, things would’ve been so much easier for me if I had a tablet. Children today are so much smarter than when I was a kid because they are exposed to so much knowledge. Kids are not just playing on these tablets, they’re learning and they’re learning a lot, fast! I feel it is so important to get each child its own learning tablet. I feel it’s the most important tool for their learning experience!
