Let me start out by saying that I really loved the KidsCraft app! I thought that this app was very original and had lots of fresh ideas about crafting with your kids. The KidsCraft app was designed to provide parents and children with fun and unique crafts that they can do together.
On the opening pages of the app, you will scroll through to select the craft you wish to make with your child. There are 4 main screens featuring a total of 20 craft ideas (5 per page). When you select the craft you wish to make, you are directed to a simple, step-by-process guide on how to make the desired craft. In the top right-hand corner of the page is the “What You Will Need” list to use as a reference for materials needed to make the craft. For example, the very first craft is a Boat – some of the needed materials are acrylic paint, wooden skewers, etc. After you have completed the craft, you can swipe up to see a picture and the suggested use for the craft…for the Boat, fill the sink or bathtub with water and run your fleet (because of course you will make more than one boat!). I really loved all the craft ideas, they range from Boats to Rain Charmers to T-Shirt Drawing. The menus and pages of the app are beautifully designed and refreshingly modern. I loved the look and feel of the app!
There is a Tips section provided on the home page as well. In the Tips section, the app designer stresses the importance of improvising and lets you know that it is ok to use substitutes for materials…no double-sided tape, no biggie – just use glue! An “About” section is also provided that lets parents know a little about the app designer and her goals for her children’s app. I think that the app designer has definitely succeeded in creating a crafting app that parents and children will love!
I really enjoyed the KidsCraft app. I think that this app is one that parents and their children (all ages) could have a lot of fun with together. I highly recommend this app and encourage parents to check it out for sure!
