Yum-Yum Letters: new handwriting app

Many developers have been designing apps to encourage handwriting development.  A newer example of such an app is Yum-Yum Letters by Kindermatica Ltd.  If you’re wanting a fun app to teach your kiddo how to write his/her letters, check out Yum-Yum Letters!

Yum-Yum Letters features cute characters like a plump yum-yum letterscaterpillar or cheery snowflake which help trace letters. The app is “so cheery and full of positive reinforcement and encouragement, kids will view tracing as a game.  They have a choice of scratching out letters on a frosty window or munching through alphabet imprinted leaves to get to a shiny red apple.”

After your child finishes tracing a series of letters, he/she will receive a reward which may be helping the caterpillar transform into a butterfly, or making a snowflake from jewel-like ice crystals.  Children have so much fun with these mini-games, they don’t even realize they’re working on their motor skills and the control they need to write!
