Yesterday was the last day of school for Bean, and that means that today was the first day of Christmas break. The hubs worked today so that meant that I was alone to fuel those feelings of anticipation. I had a special treat to share with the kids. A brand new app, Windy and Friends and a Windy and Friends Advent Calendar.
Are you familiar with Windy and Friends? They are a crafty mamas dream come true! Visit the Windy and Friends website and the first thing you see is “Welcome to our handmade world.” You truly feel like you stepped into a handmade world when you hang out with Windy.
Robin and Judith decided to make their books interactive and created a series of Windy & Friends Appisodes. What is an appisode you ask? An appisode is an interactive story that you can download to your iphone, ipad or android device. You can explore each appisode by touching and swiping your screen. You can also put the appisode on autoplay mode to have the story read to you. Each of the appisodes come with two bonus games that are unique to that episode.
As a bonus, that crafty mamas will love, the appisodes also have activities that you can do after you are done exploring the story. Activities include craft projects, recipes, music and more!
Looking for even more Windy fun? Check out the Windy & Friends Advent calendar. The crafts, music and recipes in the calendar are fabulous. I’m going to keep it bookmarked for fun activities to do all year long.
What are you doing with your little ones to get them into the Christmas spirit?
Thank you to the Windy and Friends team for sharing the Windy and Friends Appisodes with me. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
