20 Best Kid Apps That Don’t Require WiFI
- Dr. Panda Games These have been a favorite in this house for years and at 8, Milana still plays these games! I highly recommend purchasing one of the bundles, it is worth every penny. They even have an airport game, which is great for traveling kids. There are so many different themes to choose from, your kids are bound to find one they love.
- Duck Duck Moose Trucks This app is great for the toddler crowd. It’s a simple app but lots of fun for little ones. When you tap the different trucks, you can make them splash in the mud and then go through the car wash. The trucks can pick up garbage, dump dirt, and so much more! A must if you’re traveling with toddlers.
- Sago Mini These are fun, open ended apps that preschoolers and even older kids will love! They recently added an Airport one which is lots of fun.
- Doodle Jump This is an addictive game that’s fun for everyone in your family, not just kids! You will be an alien that goes through levels and tries to earn points. This game is better for the older kids as it requires good hand-eye coordination.
