Inkspot Monsters Await Your Creativity
This app provides inspiration to draw monsters by starting with a ink splat on the page (think Rorschach inkblots). From there, kids add whimsical body parts by selecting and dragging them from a file labeled "Parts."
How to Play
With simple controls, kids can attach eyes, mouths, appendages and bodies to their ink splat to create one-of-a-kind Ink Monsters.
What Makes It So Good?
The brainchild of Stefan G. Bucher, who draws the monsters on the website DailyMonster.com, this app makes it intuitive to draw great-looking and comical creatures. By using their imaginations, kids can create something wonderful from something completely abstract, and then share it with family and friends.
We like that the app allows you to take a photo of yourself with your monster from inside the app. Its hilarious and zany fun to share with others.
This app does have in-app purchases to unlock the Premium version as well as additional body parts.
While kids as young as age 6 can have fun exploring this app, it wasn't made specifically for kids, so it has social media links. Parents of younger children will need to police those links, while teens can have a blast posting their creations to Twitter, Facebook, and/or Pinterest.
