The importance of games has an irreplaceable place in children’s development in terms of language development, physical and intellectual development and self-care development. Games help children to develop by bringing out their skills like exploration, imitation, and creativity. Games are an opportunity to solve problems.

We complied a few applications that can be beneficial as long as parents are in control and that our children can learn as they play.
