How to Play
This drawing app provides 18 different scenes into which kids can add their own creativity. Each scene prompts kids to draw something related to the scene. When kids add their own artwork and then hit the prominent "Go" button, their artwork animates. It is magical. To kids, it seems as if their paintings have come alive. A favorite scene shows a monster, and kids are asked to draw what is coming out of its mouth.
This app is so much fun, that it is hard to believe it's free. By providing drawing prompts, the app offers a supportive environment for kids who are hesitant to draw. And when things animate, it is as if the ink is enchanted.
In addition to drawing, kids can also watch an animated video about three friends, using their creativity to go on an adventure. This video encourages kids to use their own imagination.
For those wanting more scenes, 16 additional pages are available as an in-app purchase for $1.99. We love that parents have the option of hiding the in-app purchase from their kids by controlling that option in the Parental Zone.
