Most of us grew up with Play School and the generations after us are just as enamoured. We’re massive fans of this delightful children’s program and now there is an app full of great activities for your two to six-year-old and it’s free for a very limited time!
Mandi had the pleasure of visiting the Play School studio earlier this year and witnessed first hand the amount of work that goes into a single episode. The sense of fun amongst the cast and crew was evident and now they’ve applied that good feeling to a gorgeous app that made me smile as I navigated my way through it – Play School Art Maker.
Guided by the familiar voices of Alex Papps and Karen Pang, children can create their own Play School scenes using the much-loved Play School characters. I set up a beach scene with Big and Little Teds, Jemima, some shells and a few sandcastles and was then able to take a still photograph to apply to a story slideshow. It’s an app which suits both toddlers and children in early primary school as the range of activities spreads over many abilities and aptitudes.
Kids can even make a movie with audio by moving the characters around their little set and creating a voiceover. Get Play School Art Maker for free for a limited time and your children will have a ball on the iPad with their favourite characters and practising valuable technical skills.
