My Gnome on the Roam: 15 Minute Adventures for Busy Families is a magic wand. The New York Times called it an “anti-app”…designed to help create stronger, happier kids, and more present and connected adults.
One tap gives you a daily idea. Each idea is stored in the app history … which quickly becomes a library filled with 15-minute adventure ideas for every day of the week:
Make it Monday
Tell Me Tuesday
Soul Food Sunday
What are you waiting for? Adventure awaits…

What our experts think
The 15 Minute Adventures app offers daily activity ideas which are a great way to encourage family bonding, active play and exploration. The children found the app easy to use and were able to read and navigate around it independently.
The ability to log the adventures and activities they had completed is lovely as it allows children to record memories to look back on. Using this as a journal encourages children to develop their language, writing and storytelling skills. This is also ideal for sparking their creativity and engaging them in activities away from the screen that they can then come back and record later. It is worth noting that the app charges a monthly subscription to use.
