Art apps can really help inspire creativity. There are times I use them myself, just to get the creative juices flowing. Art apps are also a great choice when you are traveling because, unlike markers, there are no worries about having your child draw all over the car seats or walls in the hotel room.  You can have all the fun of markers and paper without any of the mess.

Art Apps for Kids

Fun Colors is an art app that your kids are really going to love. It turns learning the colors of the world into a fun game with a variety of activities to inspire creativity and intellectual growth. Fun Colors has three different sections. There is a story book that your child can listen along to that helps enforce the different colors. White decides to go visit yellow and pairs up with a variety of different colors on a journey to find him. As your child listens to the story, they will see the different colored characters and words to reinforce what they are. Your child will also learn about how mixing two colors will make a third color. Your child will interact with the story to clear the colors from the screen and create a rainbow and be entertained by the fun sound effects.

Your child can also use Fun Colors to draw their own creations with their finger on the screen using many different colors. Or they can color pre-made stories by dragging colors to the correct object like green to the leaves of a tree and then watch the animation that happens when they make the correct choice. Personally, I’m partial to the adorable elephant. Make sure your child tries that one first.

    Thanks for the link! Since I don't have little ones any more, I'm outa the loop on kids educational apps. Will keep my nephews entertained with this one.
  7. How fun is this! My son would love an app like this; sounds like it inspires the mind with creativity! 
  8. Awesome! As an adult, I think mindless, just-for-fun apps are great, however kids need play that stimulates their mind. This is a great concept that combines learning how to use today's technology with the basic foundation of learning that they'll need for school.
