Welcome to Monday’s Apps For Kids, a new Cult of Android feature where we take a look at kid-centric apps. Many of us are parents with kids who seem to know their way around our mobile devices better than we do.

So grab whatever crayon is lying around and get ready to write down a few apps worth checking out.
