Educational apps are a beautiful thing. See, learning works best when your kids don’t realize they’re actually doing it. And when your kid is armed with a tablet and a fun game, they’re not going to feel like they’re learning something — they’re just going to have tons of fun. And they’re going to want to keep going back to that app (read: learn) over and over.

From math apps to reading apps, the best educational apps are endlessly entertaining while helping children build incredibly important skills. Things that will help them do well in school, and yes, in life. Here, we’ve rounded up the best educational apps to download right now.
