An easy way to get into the holiday spirit is by playing around with a Christmas themed app. Every year, there are some interesting, and free, Christmas apps for Android. They are great for keeping small children happily occupied while you are waiting in line by the registers.
Christmas Games is a free app for Android. It has five Christmas themed games for children (and adults) to play. There is a jigsaw puzzle and a shape puzzle. It has connect the dot, a memory game, and a scratch game. The connect the dot game fills in a detailed cartoon image when completed. This app is appropriate for preschoolers.
Toddler Christmas is another free app for Android. As you may have guessed from the name of the app, this one is designed for toddlers and very young children. It features Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, Rudolf, a penguin, Christmas lights, snowflakes, and more. Push a button on the display to see a Christmas animation with a music effect.
Let It Snow is a very relaxing free app for Android. It has a winter scene with Christmas trees. Watch the snow fall on the trees and surrounding areas as you listen to one of ten (randomly selected) Christmas songs. This is a good way to de-stress after shopping, and might entertain a toddler for a while.
Day till Christmas is a free app for Android. It is a “widget” that gives you a countdown till Christmas day. It sits on your home screen. The app allows you to add a to do list into it. The comments left on this app indicate that the countdown uses pretty, red, ornaments with the number of days left until Christmas on it.
Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles is another free app for Android. This one is for the kids (and adults) who really like playing with virtual, Christmas themed, jigsaw puzzles. There are a total of 12 puzzles in the app. You can use the in-game hint button if you get “stuck”. This one is family friendly.
Tap Blox Christmas is another Christmas app for Android that is free right now. This is a “match-3” type of game. There are three ways to play it.
“Classic” includes a timer. “Enhanced” is like “Classic”, but includes a Special Item called “ColorCleaner” that will remove all the blocks of one color from the screen. There is also a “Puzzle Mode”.
