It’s great having the kids around during the summer, but sometimes a little distraction can go a long way in helping parents, caregivers and babysitters keep the noise to a dull roar. These apps from the Google Play Store are not only fun, but can be educational as well, so you don’t have to feel guilty about getting some well-deserved quiet time.
Crazy Farm HD (Android 2.0 or higher)
The rooster rings in the morning with a cock-a-doodle-do, the cow mooos as she gets milked, the chickens cluck as they lay their eggs, and the sheep baaaaaas as the sheers cut its wool. A day at the farm is very long as there are many animals and lots of work to be done. But it’s also very fun!

Each night Jack dreams of his favorite toys: laser-blasting Galaxianoids, gunpowder-packed desert dwellers, electricity zapping creatures of the Deep Deep Sea and Crazy Bosses!
