An app from the World Wildlife Fund about endangered animals may first appear a little off topic. After all, what has this got to do with getting the kids outside?
Now you are unlikely to come across Giant Pandas when out for a walk with your kids, but this app is designed to help people of all ages learn a little bit more about some threatened species.
The app is available for Android, iOS, and Kindle….and has stunning graphics.
Once you’ve worked out the basic navigation, you can explore lots of interesting facts about each animal, and each animal shows it slightly differently so it doesn’t get repetitive.
It’s a great app to spend a few minutes with your kids to explore some interesting information. And I bet there’s stuff in there that you didn’t know about.
I didn’t realise the a new born Giant Panda is about the size of a stick of butter!
Once you’ve completed an animal it will reveal how to make it out of paper.
Unfortunately the video that shows it is very fast. You’ll have to keep pausing it. There are some step-by-step instructions but unfortunately we found the app crashed each time we tried to load them. We’re hoping they fix that soon.
One of our daughters spent a good while with the app (she took the screenshot pictures shown here). She really liked the app, but was disappointed the step-by-step origami instructions didn’t work.
Downloading the App
Hopefully the origami instructions will work for you as they look quite fun.
