UPDATE: This giveaway has ended. Winner is #20, Heather.
Halloween is just a few weeks away, and I have had fun posting a few Halloween themed posts for you on the blog this year. As my kids get older I’m also having fun doing Halloween-themed things with them. Decorating the house, reading spooky books and baking yummy Halloween-themed treats are a few of the fun things that we have been doing this month.
If your kids are always begging you to download fun new apps for them, be sure to check out the new Room on the Broom Games app from Magic Light Pictures (available for Android or iPhone/iPad). This fun new app is based on Penguin Group’s #1 best selling Room on the Broom children’s picture book, written by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler – the same folks who created the critically-acclaimed book series, The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child.
If you haven’t read the Room on the Broom you should check it out. It’s a lot of fun to read and the illustrations are so colorful! My 3 year old loved the book – especially because she was holding the Witch Plush Toy while I read it to her. She loved making comparisons between the book and the toy. My 7 year old actually really liked the book as well. She loves to read to her little sister…and I love when we find books that appeal to both of them!
The Room on the Broom games app has something for everyone in the 3-7 year old age bracket. This app offers 8 activities that players can explore. Counting, creativity and literacy are just a few of the skills that young players can develop and perfect. One of my favorite features of this is app is the lack of in-app purchases – I’m always afraid that my kids are going to purchase things on accident and I don’t have to worry about that with the Room on the Broom games app.
Fans can play with their favorite characters—Witch, Cat, Dog, Bird, Frog and Dragon in these magical games:
- Join the stars – Fly through the air and connect all the sparkly stars to find the right image!
- Find the hat – The Witch has lost her hat! Is it behind the tree? Help Dog find the hat in the woods.
- Windy day collecting game – It’s a windy day and Cat needs help collecting a few things, will you help? Be careful not to miss them!
- Find the bow – The Witch has lost her bow! Is it in the hay? Help Bird find the bow in the field.
- Find the wand – The Witch has lost her wand! Is it under the lily pad? Help Frog find the wand in the pond.
- Drawing with stars – Light up your imagination by creating pictures in the night sky. Place the numbered stars where you wish and watch the witch transform it into a dot-to-dot picture.
- Dragon loves fries – The Dragon is hungry and is planning to have fries for his dinner! Feed the dragon fries and avoid the other falling objects from the sky!
- Fly the magnificent broom – Whoosh! Join the gang on the magnificent broom and fly through the starry night sky. Take control and steer the broom to collect letters, which spell out a word!
In addition to the Room on the Broom Book and App, you can also find the Room on the Broom Witch Plush and Room on the Broom DVD on Amazon. You’ll also be able to check out the Room on the Room on a special Halloween broadcast on Sprout on October 30, 31, November 29 and December 7!
You can find the Room on the Broom on Facebook, and online - where you’ll find lots of fun and FREE activities such as how to make your own wand, a “can you find” challenge, help Witch through the maze to find her bow, and a fun word search puzzle.
