Grow Your Garden

Help your little sprout develop mental addition and subtraction skills—and a green thumb—with Grow Your Garden, an app boasting adorable graphics, a simple interface and basic math puzzles.

Kids will help baby plants grow into flourishing fauna by figuring out the exact amount of water to give each one. When a potted plant gets enough water, it’s moved to a virtual garden to keep track of progress. Spinning stars, blooming buds and cheery sounds celebrate completed puzzles; answer incorrectly, however, and you’ll be greeted with an unfriendly raincloud.

Children will be so busy tending to their gardens that they won’t notice the improvement in fine motor dexterity, mental addition and subtraction capabilities, and critical thinking skills … but you will.
