Today I’m excited to be sharing a huge list of the best apps for kids that don’t need wifi or data!
A few years ago, we spent Christmas in Hawaii. I knew that three little boys on a six hour plane flight both to Hawaii and back was going to be a little tough, so I needed to be prepared.
When we took a previous trip to Miami, I brought all of our electronics, but much to my chagrin, without wifi only ONE of our kid apps worked on the plane flight. Mom fail.
I was bound and determined to be much better prepared this time around.
So I asked you wonderful people for your best non-wifi app recommendations, and of course you came through for me.
We downloaded a bunch, and both my kids and I checked them out.
(FAVORITE KIDS HEADPHONES LINKED HERE)
Here are the ones that ended up being our favorites (but I’ve included the entire list of your recommendations at the bottom of the post).
YouTube Red [Free trial, then $11.99/mo]. This is a great app that allows you to download youtube content to your phone. Fos is obsessed with Art For Kids Hub videos right now, so I downloaded six or seven of them before our flight so he could draw on the plane. Then I deleted them and downloaded a bunch more for the flight home.
Netflix App [FREE – need a paid account to log in]. If you already have a netflix account, this is a really great app to have for traveling. You can download episodes straight to your phone so you can watch them without streaming.
Stack the States [$2.99] We LOVED this one. It has trivia about the states, and when you get the correct answer, the state falls down onto a platform and you try to stack them up to reach a designated line. Some of the states are not very easy to balance and your stack comes crashing down. I played it too and had a blast.
Tozzle [$3.99]. This a great drag and drop puzzle game for toddlers and little kids. I also love that it automatically has a parental lock.
Tozzle Words [$1.99]. This is a great one for kids learning to spell. It has the same drag and drop system as Tozzle. My only complaint about it is that it doesn’t seem to have any kind of direction that tells you what you’re supposed to do. It gives you a few clues here and there of where you’re supposed to click, but I had a hard time getting the train to go where it was supposed to, and the animals to do what they were supposed to. But it’s still educational and fun.
Quick Math Jr. [FREE] This one is fun for early learners. Simple math and counting, and you earn pieces to build your own monster.
Sudoku [FREE] My almost eight year old is really into Sudoku lately, so I downloaded this app right before we left. My husband actually ended up playing it while the kids were watching a movie, so it’s good for all ages 😉
Duck Duck Moose TRUCKS [FREE] San is obsessed with trucks right now so this was a great app for him. It’s very basic, but you can tap the different trucks and make them splash in the mud and then go through the car wash, pick up the garbage and recycling, or scoop up and dump dirt with a dump truck and digger. He spent a good amount of time on this app during our flights. Duck Duck Moose also has other trucks, cars and vehicle apps that are all free. They’re great for ages 2-4.
Below are all the other apps you shared, but I wanted to share one other quick tip…
Have you heard of Guided Access??
It’s a capability on your iPhone that allows you to lock the phone in a single app, so if your toddler pushes the home button it doesn’t automatically bump them off and cause frustration.
Get to it in your Settings app > General > Accessibility > Guided Access.
You set a passcode so you can unlock it, and then to start Guided Access, triple-click the home button on your phone when you’re in the app. To unlock it, triple-click again and enter your passcode.
This is seriously a mom’s best friend. Turn yours on right now!
[I’m sure Androids have something similar, but I don’t know what it is. If you know, leave a comment and share!]

You’re a brave woman to fly with twins! Supermom!
excellent post. There are many there that I will have to try. We have flown to the US from Australia twice with 2 young boys and that 14+ hour flight is a killer! My boys love the free LEGO apps, most of which don’t require wifi and are age appropriate.

Thank you for your recommendations. This is a great app. Now is a good time, with the help of various gadgets and technologies, we can take their children during the trip or at home. And now there are a lot of not only entertainment apps but also developing. I often read about new technologies that can be used at home on the site https://smartifylife.com/, it helps me to be aware of all the novelties in the technology and gadgets industry.
This is such a great lIst. We made the mistake of getting kindle kids rather than ipads for travel. Theyre hardy aNd they haVe an awesome long Free warRanty period. But theyre NoT intuitive like ipad. Wish there was a breakdown like this foR them!

I think kid’s development is necessary for the future generation. The current educational standards are too high and make a great demand on a kid. Now we can use https://rapidessay.com/blog/sample-paper-about-jane-sharp-midwifery-since-the-eighteenth-century but who knows, maybe our kids will write everything themselves.
GREAT POST – REALLY GREAT TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WILL WORK WITHOUT WIFI WHEN YOU’RE TRAVELLING. IT CAN BE SO FRUSTRATING FOR KIDS TO NOT BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHY THINGS AREN’T WORKING AS THEY’RE USED TO!

I attach the link here, for everyone has to hold a wedding someday.
You can find all kinds of elegant invitations there and the customer service is great. They have professional designers to provide unlimited proofs through email, so, don’t worry about the final result.
Hope this advice helps you!

At first I was also looking for such applications for my child because the Internet is very contagious. And when children see ads or just go to the search page on the Internet, they can see anything there, but then I realized that the Internet is everywhere now and I don’t see the point of hiding all this from children. Now everything is built on the Internet. Recently, my wife ordered on the website https://ajax.systems/products/leaksprotect/ water level sensors to avoid leaks and there also need internet. Maybe we still need to teach children to the Internet from childhood?
