I’m all for kids getting to use my iPad to color and create. But I love getting them offline to do the same with old-fashion crayons and markers too. (Remember those?) Here’s an app company that’s doing both.
The Silly Aliens Supercrayon coloring app has wonderful illustrations created by real cartoonists, not free clip art. Your kids will have 27 wonderful creatures to turn into their own, save, and even print and share.
What I also like is that you can visit their website, Supercrayon.com, to find a basic little animated tutorial on how to draw a Halloween cartoon monster. Simple animation talks them through it step by step, and considering how much my kids loved learning how to draw Mo Willems’ Pigeon, it’s a guaranteed hit even when October is over.
