I have two feet squarely planted in the world of Tween girls at the moment. My oldest daughter is an 11 1/2 year old middle schooler and my next youngest is an 8 1/2 year old third grader.
In our house my girls share a few similar hobbies but they also have very different tastes and interests. One is more artistic and into styling clothes and outfits. The other likes to read and enjoys science fiction. We’ve discovered that it’s easy to find apps for their younger brother but young girls are still a bit neglected in the App Store. It can be tough to find apps that don’t treat them like celebrity crazed, boy chasing, make-up wearing, growing up too fast girls. Moving off my soap box now, here’s a list I’ve compiled of apps that I feel comfortable letting my Tween girls use. The best part, they enjoy playing them!
