Create Crafty Cats
For animal-lovers, this handsome app features artistic cats created from craft items, including buttons, old brooches, fancy fabrics, zippers, pipe cleaners, and such.
How to Play
The app offers two modes of play: cat puzzles and cat design. In the puzzle mode, known as Kat Cut, an elaborate cat made out of rich fabrics and bric-a-brac appears. When kids touch it, it breaks apart into its individual components. Kids experiment with recombining the items to recreate the dramatic-looking cat. A hint button can provide you with a reminder of what the finished feline looks like. There are six elegant cats to reassemble. Playing with the cats in the puzzles primes kids to start creating their own pets. The app provides heads, bodies, arms, paws, and facial features to allow you to create your own one-of-a-kind feline.
What Makes It Good?
Similar in design to Faces iMake
, kids learn to create cats from collage materials. The app provides easy access to the possible parts. Once a cat is finished, kids can photograph it in a frame of their choosing to share over email and such.
IdentiKat is a good fit for kids who like to do crafts projects. It is also a big draw for kids who like animals. That said, because of its dramatic visuals, this app will appeal to kids who don't like crafts and art projects because of its dramatic-looking cats.
