    This will bring you to the home screen.
    Unlike our other tutorials with kids mode, we are not actually going to press the kids mode icon. Instead, we are going to tap the Google Play Store icon so that we can download some great games for our child.

    However, in this case, we are not going to be opening the application.
    Instead, we are going to switch back to kids mode. So once it's installed and you have finished the installation process, go down to the bottom of your phone and press that black oval button for you home screen. It might be a different color, depending on your model of phone, but it is always an oval shape. Give it a press.
