Technology sometimes gets a bad name. Especially when it involves kids. And even more so when it is mentioned in summer. Everywhere you go you see kids playing on tablets and smart phones that many people wonder if they can do anything else. There are times though when technology and electronic devices are a life saver for parents. Waiting in doctor’s offices for what seems like hours on end, or when trying to put a younger sibling to sleep are just a couple of situations where electronic devices provide a breather for the weary parent.
But how can you encourage your children to use their imagination while using electronics? Is there a way to ensure that they are actually using their mind instead of mindlessly staring at a screen?
From PicsArt comes a new app just for kids — PicsArt for Kids! PicsArt for Kids helps your child develop and discover new creative skills. PicsArt traditionally focuses on providing users with a unique photo-editing experience and kids can expect the same with the new kids version. The PicsArt for Kids app has new features that inspire creativity with tools that include interactive animations, new sounds and more!
“Curiosity and creativity are two things that go hand-in-hand for children experimenting with art.” said PicsArt CEO, Hovhaness Avoyan, “With this new app update, we’ve added features that provide educational value for kids without compromising the creative spirit at the core of our apps.”
Not only can your kids edit and create with the new PicsArt for Kids app, but there are a bunch of FREE colouring pages available in the app, with more available via in-app purchases. These colouring pages help them develop a sense of color and shape, and teach them how to draw using different brush strokes and other artistic tools.
