Apps for Moms: Cool Art Apps for Kids
Want to nurture your kid's inner Picasso without worrying about getting paint on the walls? These awesome art apps have got you covered.
- Brushes ($4.99, iPhone/iPad)
It's not cheap, but this app is worth the investment if you (or your kid) are serious about painting. App-loving artists swear that Brushes lets the user control brush strokes and realistically simulate the painting experience, but your finger-paint-loving kid is just gonna think it's supercool!
- Connect N Color (99 cents, iPhone/iPad)
This fun connect-the-dots app is aimed at 2- to 6-year-olds who will get a kick out of coloring puzzles of Fuzzy the Fox and his friends. But forget Fuzzy: You'll just be happy they're entertained long enough for you to get dinner on the table!
- Faces iMake (99 cents, iPhone/iPad)
Move over Mr. Potato Head! This face-making app lets your kids use food, toys and household objects to build funny face collages. (Hey, it's better than using food, toys and household objects to build funny faces on their own heads!)
- Doodle Kids (Free, iPhone/iPad and Droid)
Share this artsy app for moms with your budding genius and who knows what could happen?! Turns out this free little doodle pad app was actually created by a kid. If 9-year-old Lim Ding Wen can do it, why not your kid?
