HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Loading up the RV and heading to the campground this weekend? How about down to the beach for some 4th of July fireworks?

Wherever you’re headed, if you have small children, you probably already know that sometimes (despite your best efforts) they get bored.

That’s where an app called LumiKids Beach may help. Designed by the folks at Lumosity, the app offers creative play and intuitive thinking games in a digital “beach playground.”

Probably best for younger children, ages 2 to 7, the app is not specifically designed as a brain training tool. Its games do, however, encourage adaptive thinking and incorporate concepts like color association, sound matching and motor skill development.

The LumiKids Beach app is free for download in the Apple App Store or via Google Play.

It’s one in a series of similar apps from the maker.
