Free Ipad Apps for Active Learning – Numbers/Counting Ipad

I shared some Free Android Apps for Numbers and Counting a couple weeks ago. Now I am sharing some free ipad apps for active learning on the Ipad for Numbers and Counting. When comparing the Android and Ipad apps available I quickly learned that the Ipad has a lot more better quality apps. We have been testing a huge selection of apps for a while now. If there are too many ads we delete them. If my 4 year old cannot understand how to use the app we delete it.

Free Ipad Number Apps for active learning

After much testing we have discovered these 6 apps which we like and play almost daily. I only have educational apps on this ipad so it doesn’t bother me when they play it.

Counting 123
Toddler Counting 123 Free – No in app purchases

Laugh Learn

 Laugh & Learn Let’s Count Animals for Baby – No in app purchases

Endless 123

Endless 123 – 1-5 Free then you need to upgrade. My 20 month old loves to play this game. I would upgrade this game we use it that much.

123 Ninja

123 Ninja – No in app purchases. This app is good for recognizing numbers. You are told which number to look for then you need to “slice” it.

Fish Swish

Fish Swish – No in app purchases. Count the fish as they swim by then choose the right number out of 3 choices. Need to already know the numbers.

Number Quiz Number Quiz – Partially free, you can upgrade to the full version. I like that this app has 4 ways of teaching the numbers.

If there are any other free ipad apps for numbers/counting that your kids play and love please let me know. New apps are always being released.


I am a mom to Five Little Chefs who love to cook and create anything with their hands. Watching over 10 additional hands keeps me busy but is so much fun! We laugh and cry everyday, but then want to do it again the next day. That is how we know we are enjoying life!
