Games & apps we love to play with!

games and apps we love

If you like technology, chances are you’ve found some games and apps that are just for fun. Nothing wrong with that – everyone needs some play time! With easy access to entertaining material on computers, tablets, and smartphones, there are a lot of great options out there. I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite games and apps and even talk about a few that our kids like as well. After all, many of us share our devices with our kids!

My Favorites:

  • Minion Rush (I’m addicted to this silly game!)
  • Mancala – great for when I need something mindless to help me get to sleep

My kids love:


From Heddy:

  • Boggle – I love this game in real life, so the app version is perfect for me. Available for Apple & Google.
  • Outworded – A timed word search game. It’s the perfect thing to do when I need a mental break.
  • Songza – I love the curated playlists. So much good music to fit any mood!
  • Devour app – Each day the editors at Devour select a handful of really amazing videos to share.

My kids love:


From Anne:

  • Carrot – a fun and slightly strange alarm to wake you up in the morning.
  • Wunderlist – for things to remember (Ronnie also loves this one)
  • Mailbox – to read and archive email
    Human – to track your movements outside, giving a thumbs up if you’ll walk/run/bike for 30 minutes a day
    Notability – to write and draw
    Lumosity – fun games to give your brain a workout (I’ve only used that one on a iPad)
