Fun With Colors App for Kids
As a mom, I am constantly on the lookout for apps that are appropriate for my kids but that will also teach them. I’m not a big fan of the mindless apps where my kids don’t learn anything. I do, however, like apps that are fun and educational without my kids even realizing it. Fun With Colors is a new app for iOS, Android, Samsung and Amazon.
Fun With Colors is targeted for kids ages 2-5 and exposes kids to colors and learning in an interactive and creative way. Features of the app include:
- An adorable picture book that teaches color names and more
- Read-along that features narration in English, German, and Mandarin Chinese
- A color identification mini-game with animated scenes and funny sound effects
- A painting and drawing section where your child’s imagination can run free
- Kid-friendly controls – intuitive controls don’t need to be read to be understood
- A parent-friendly interface – no in-app purchases for accidental spending.
I put this app to the test with my 6 year old. Learning has not come easy for him as he is on an IEP and has some delays. It’s hard to get him focused and excited about learning. He doesn’t care much about reading books and throws a fit when I suggest it. He is much more receptive to the ipad and I was pleasantly surprised with how engaged he was with Fun With Colors. During reading time, while his older brother read a chapter book, he followed along with the picture book 4 times. He was discussing the colors with me and we identified a few sight words that he knew. It was exciting to me to see him this engaged.
Some apps take some figuring out even for parents, but Fun With Colors was one where I could give the ipad to my son and he had it figured out within a matter of minutes. He loved the painting and drawing and there is fun music that accompanies while you draw. He made this picture for me and was so proud.
You can download Fun With Colors for $2.99. It’s an app that I would recommend to other parents looking to teach kids about colors and creativity.
