Live Colors for Kids (Review)

Published by Lydia Richmond on

The Animal likes to color. He loves to write his numbers and letters in every color he can find and then “trace them” (this is how he says “erase them”) and start over.

We have been playing with a new app, Live Colors for Kids. This app is geared toward preschoolers (under age 5), so it is a perfect fit for our three year old. He was immediately drawn in by the songs and images.

When you open the app, you have two choices. You can either color one of the already-drawn images, or you can draw on a blank canvas. The Animal immediately chose to color a pear (but this is actually my work here as he wanted to watch the first time). The little worm crawls across the bottom of the screen. Very cute.

Next, he chose to color a pig. The app prompted him to create pink from the red and white. I love this feature as it is a really smart way to teach children about color combining. I had to guide him a bit to put the red and the white down in the palette, but he was amazed when it changed.

We finished the coloring, and stars popped up on the screen in celebration of completing the picture. He really loved it!

Next, he chose to use the blank canvas because, like I said, he needed to make his numbers. He went through all of the colors to get from 1 to 10.

One screen he wanted to interact with was the palette explanation screen. He really wanted to see the colors mix from that screen, and I had to explain that this was just showing us all of the colors we could make.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

What a cute app! My son loves to play on my phone while we are waiting for the Doctor, or if we have a long drive somewhere. I love to have educational apps downloaded for him to play, and I think the Live Colors is a great addition!
