Calling all nature lovers!
Nature has a way of enchanting our children. I’ll never forget how my elder son once played in the glacial melt of Yosemite’s Merced River for hours, never complaining about the cold. This is a kid, mind you, who usually asks for a coat when the temperature is anything south of 80 degrees.
To celebrate Nature’s enchantment during this Earth Month, the National Wildlife Federation has offered five free kid’s apps for iPad to be given away, one each, to five lucky Mama Latina Tips readers.
The National Wildlife Federation Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures: Lions was produced by the editors of Ranger Rick Jr. magazine and developed by the award-winning animators at Moonbot Studios, winners of the 2012 Academy Award® for Best Animated Short Film. It offers age-appropriate (for the iPad & ages 4-7), ad-free content in a fun, yet educational, format through interactive animal games, videos, stories, puzzles, photos, jokes and more.
—Eye-catching wildlife photography
—Engaging videos and slide shows
—Playful animated infographics
—Tons of suprising animal facts
—Photo Safari: count the lions in Lars’ pride by surveying a 360° view of the African plains
—Sound Match: pair animals with the sounds they make
—Hide-and-Seek: find the cubs hidden in the grass by tilting the iPad
—Jigsaw Puzzle: piece together animal photos
—What’s Wrong?: identify humorous mistakes in a wildlife scene
—Animal Piano: compose really “wild” music
—Sticker Board: find stickers in the photo story and use them to create lively pictures
—Animal Builder: mix and match body parts to make hundreds of animals—serious or silly
—Trail Tales: write funny fill-in-the-blank stories
