“No mess coloring book”
Softick Coloring Book is a no-mess, high-guidance coloring book suitable for very young learners. A small set of black and white pictures comes with a palette 12 basic colors, but the action is auto-fill, not actual coloring: tap a color and then tap a space on the picture to have it fill in automatically, which may not sit well with older kids who want to color outside the lines (hint to developers!). You can save your work, take and mail a snapshot of it, or clear the image and start over. One feature allows you to adjust the shading of colors, but this might be difficult for little ones to figure out. Presumably additional pictures will be forthcoming.
“Just another coloring book, only without the crayons”
This app features simple pictures that very young children can color by touch. Tapping on a color palate helps select the color, while touching a part of the picture changes it from white to the selected color. A confusing picture of a white hand allows the child to alter the shade of the color by tapping or rubbing the screen. A limited range of pictures are available for coloring.
“Color and communicate”
Kids can tap the screen to color pages of familiar objects on attractive backgrounds, then save them or send them with this app's easy-to-use coloring and communication features for a straightforward and fun art experience.
Color a picture in crazy ways (e.g., paint the duck’s bill green), and then let your child come through and fix it. This not only helps keep your child engaged longer (“Silly Daddy!”), but also reinforces awareness of how colors appear in real life.
Make bath time a rainbow of fun and encourage your child to express his or her creative side by mixing some shaving cream and food coloring! On the way to the bath, stop alongside some objects at your child’s height and identify its color or have your little one tell you what color it is.
Parents and kids can create coloring pages using a variety of colors and share them
