Sinterklaas will arrive in the Netherlands this weekend. Together with the helpers they will come back in the coming weeks to spoil the children in the Netherlands with presents and sweets. DroidApp lists the nine best apps for the children (and secretly also for the parents), which are indispensable during the ‘lovely evening’ and in the days leading up to it.
Mid-November is the time that Sinterklaas moors with the helpers with the parcel boat in the Netherlands. DroidApp has listed the best apps for Sinterklaas for you. The applications in this overview consist of both useful apps and fun games.
Would you like to call Sinterklaas? It is possible with the app Calling with Sinterklaas. The Saint can call you and he can tell you where the presents can be found on Parcel Evening. If Sinterklaas does not answer, you can always leave the voicemail. You can also text Sinterklaas and hear how many nights it is still sleeping until Pakjesavond.
Would you rather make a poem by hand? Then there is the Rhyme application to help you. With the app you can enter a word and let it rhyme. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Rhyme Words is a free application and a large rhyming dictionary at the same time.
With the Sinterklaas app you have various options. You can see the entries, but there are also entire game elements in the app. Think of Karaoke, for example, where you can sing along to the beat of the music with many different Sinterklaas songs. There is also the Sint-Game full of entertainment that you can also play with others. The Sinterklaas app is also equipped with a memory game and a sliding puzzle.
As the name of this app indicates, you will find various games that you can play in the app ‘Sinterklaas Games’. Not just on your own, but also with two, three or four. Think of throwing gingerbread, sack races, delivering parcels (also known as Frogger from ‘the old days’) and Grab the gift. Well-known games, in a Sinterklaas jacket.
With the SinterklaasHulp app you can view the lyrics of the various Sinterklaas songs. Because how exactly did you sing ‘See over there is the steamboat’? Of course you want to get something in your shoe. Another option in the app is rhyming, so you can write a nice poem for Sinterklaas. You can also play the Sinterklaas game via the app while unwrapping presents.
With the Sinterklaas Feest app, toddlers and preschoolers can help Sinterklaas with the preparations for Christmas Eve. There are eight different mini games that are very entertaining. Think of decorating chocolate letters, assembling toys, throwing snowballs at the helpers and collecting gifts. Making music with the helpers is also possible.
If you want to get into the Sinterklaas mood completely, the Sinterklaas Radio app can come in handy. With this app you listen to the best Sinterklaas music on your smartphone or tablet. Think of the hits of the Club van Sinterklaas, Muziekpiet, Coole Piet and the songs of the Junior Songfestival. We recommend that you listen to SinterklaasRadio via the WiFi connection, because this can consume quite a bit of data. SinterklaasRadio works from November to December 5.
Help the Saint!
Help de Sint is a playful game where you have to help Sinterklaas. The wrapping machine is broken and the presents are flying through the air. In the game you have to make sure that the presents end up in the correct bag. The game has more than 80 levels, so you are happy for a while. Unfortunately, the game does not seem to work on all devices. Worth trying!
If you have not finished helping Sinterklaas yet, the game ‘Help Sinterklaas’ can provide more entertainment. The Petes lost a lot of presents along the way. Although they are busy looking for the presents, Sinterklaas also has to help with finding the presents. You can also help search in ‘Help Sinterklaas’.
Do you have an interesting Sinterklaas app that is not in this overview? Let me know!
