Hanx Writer
Hanx Writer (for iPad)

This app is so much fun because it turns your iPad into a typewriter. If
you’ve never had the fun of using a typewriter, now you can. The app also includes modern-day features like cut, paste, share via email, iMessage and the ability to save or open in other apps. Complete with all the fun sounds of a real typewriter, this app was produced by the actor Tom Hanks. This app is free but also offers other features requiring purchase. I’m considering buying the whole package because it’s just too cool.

Magnetic Poetry
Magnetic Poetry

I love these magnetic words for forming stories or poetry on my refrigerator. They are a lot of fun. They sell tins with a wide variety of themes. My husband and I actually spent several months leaving each other silly messages every time we were in the kitchen, so they’re great for kids AND adults.
