As many of you know, Kidevolve is underway in designing our very own mindfulness app, built especially for kids aged 5-10 from the ground up. We're doing something new and exciting in this burgeoning area... and since we started crafting and refining our unique Creative Mind Journeys - super cool audio tracks for kids that double as guided practices - several other interesting players have entered this space (or added kid's material to adult apps). The good news? More options for kids, parents, mental health specialists and educators. The bad news? Not all of these offerings are created equal. Check out this list of 2018 apps and let us know which ones you like or don't like for the kids in your life and why...  Are they practical?

If you haven't already, delve in and test drive a few of these... your feedback will help us to bring something truly special to the marketplace that will really hit the mark with young children.
