Are you looking for some FREE and fun apps for your iPad or iPhone for the kids to play? They will give parents a hand at keeping kids entertained this holiday season. Gabriel Schlumberger from Callaway Digital Arts, sent us a list of his (and his kids’) favorite FREE iPad apps. These awesome apps make for happy kids when traveling, entertaining guests or curling up with cocoa while waiting for Santa and his reindeer to land on your rooftop. I haven’t tried them myself yet, so let me know if you liked them. If you know of any other free apps, you can post them in the comments for everyone.
