Quiet Games for LDS Kids (Primary, First place – Android)

Five quiet, fun, and ad-free games for children from Clint at C & R Mobile are bundled into one mobile app for a nominal fee. The “Memory” game matches each picture with its matching counterpart. “Word Search” is a fun way to find Church terms that will keep children engaged while developing visual perceptual skills. “Bingo” follows a conference-related theme with randomized selections. “Prophet Matching” connects pictures with corresponding names in a challenging and fun way. “Hangman” is a guessing game that uses LDS words built letter by letter as a classic stick figure is drawn. For a mobile app that has variety and interest, you will find this entertaining for preschoolers up through elementary age children.
