This easy to use crossword puzzle app is an excellent way to intrigue your child to word puzzles.  With 48 levels of ever increasing difficulty your child will love to find the right letters to for, the word and complete the crossword.

The clues in these crosswords are pictures, so your child most recognise the picture and then choose the correct letter tiles from the selection below and then place them in the right order.  Only the correct letters are placed below so there are no trick tiles. 

Each puzzle takes problem solving and the ability to work out how to spell, these are essential skills for our child. Even older children who can read can test their ability to spell on this app as there are only 48 puzzles and this can create a nice challenge. 

For younger children and for added encouragement you can use the the HINT, by tapping on the Question mark ? This turns the crossword tiles each to a colour and they match the colours on letter tiles.  This means that the letter colour matches the square colour and makes the selection process easier.

The puzzles start simply with 2 words crossing and go up to 7 words at the higher levels. You cannot jump ahead but must complete the puzzles in sequence which helps your child with self discipline and focus on the task.

The range of words included within this crossword app is excellent and the words are common to us all.  It proves fun and a wonderful way to learn to spell without really thinking you are!
