The Imagination Box app features lots of different play dough shapes, including letters and numbers, for children to play with. Your child can change each piece of molded dough’s color, and place it on their choice of background. Once your child has selected their dough and background, it is time to create any scene that they can imagine. What will it be?! The app features 62 dough pieces, including shapes, numbers, and letters (all uppercase) – and there are 9 different colors available. To add to the creativity factor, children can resize (make larger or smaller), rotate and flip each piece of play dough to make it perfect for their specific scene! As far as backgrounds, there are 12 different background colors available, as well as the option to add additional designs with 10 erasable markers – but my favorite option is ability to use a photo from the iPad’s camera roll as the background photo! Of course, when your child has finished with their masterpiece, they can take a photo of their finished creation and save the image to the iPad. Now, kids can share their creation with Mom and Dad, and all their friends and family!
I really enjoyed the Imagination Box app. I thought that this app would be great for letting children explore their creativity, as well as teach them concepts like shapes, numbers and letters while they practice their fine motor skills and work on expressive language. I would highly recommend this app to parents of younger children. I will definitely be playing more with my son!
