To give parents a hand at keeping kids entertained this holiday season, Gabriel Schlumberger, senior app producer at Callaway Digital Arts, put together a list of his (and his kids’) favorite FREE iPad apps. These awesome apps make for happy kids when traveling, entertaining guests or curling up with cocoa while waiting for Santa and his reindeer to land on your rooftop.
1. Miss Spider’s Tea Party Lite – Watch, read, listen and play as this beloved, classic picture book magically comes to life. Miss Spider is hosting a tea party—but all the bugs are afraid to come! What’s an eight-legged lady to do? Find out in this heartwarming tale, told in rhyming verse. With multi-touch animation, painting, puzzles and games, the Miss Spider’s Tea Party Lite app reinvents the reading experience for the whole family (also available on the iPhone).

These great free apps are sure to make the holiday season brighter, and they’re also a great way to pre-load that iPad the family will be opening on Christmas morning.
