Preschool Art Apps, Tools, and Resources That We Love
Are you looking for preschool art apps, tools, and resources that you can use with your students? If so, we have you covered. Check out our list below. Let us know if there are any that we missed.
Intro to Colors– The world of colors comes alive with “Intro to colors.” It’s a dynamic and interactive app that lets children appreciate and learn colors in various ways. Your child will learn both primary and secondary colors, the foundation of colors, color shades, identifying and mixing of colors as well as painting and creation of colors in a fun and exciting way.
Peep and the Big Wide World– Get ready to paint on this paint splat game featuring Quack, a likable, funny duck, and his friend, Chirp, who is a brave robin bird. Children play the game by making Quack jump and paint tubes to create color collages on the wall. The app teaches children to identify colors and get creative with mixing colors. Once you have formed the simpler secondary colors (green, purple, orange, etc.), you progress to harder tertiary colors. Quack jumps on the paint tube when you touch it, splashing blobs of yellow, blue, and red paint on the wall. Touching the water hose rinses the paint off the wall, so you can start over when you want. PrimaryPad idea for schools to keep things fun, simple, fast, and easy-to-use. PrimaryPad integrates with other tools such as Wordle, PrimaryWall, and PrimaryPaint.
Dress Up: Professions– This is a fun app for young children to learn to identify color, professions, items of coloring, and how to differentiate left from right. Children also develop their fine motor skills and creativity as they dress up the cute children on the app, which contains about 30 puzzles and 100 garments for 15 professions. This app was developed by PlayToddlers and is suitable for both male and female children.
Quiver– This is an app designed on the principles of VR technology that makes the coloring process educative and fun. The app is designed for younger students as it turns 2-D images into 3-D images in just a few steps.
