Makesto is a great app for those looking to spark creativity in their children.  With Makesto, kids can create visual stories on the iPad!  I really enjoyed the look of this app, and think that kids who love art will definitely enjoy it.

Through using Makesto, kids can easily create a visual story using their doodles, photos, text, emojis, animation effects and their own voice!  I love how kids are basically given a blank slate and can create anything they want, from a simple story to a more complex tale.  I think that this app is great for introducing kids to storytelling at a young age and they can grow with the app as they become more proficient.  While creating, it is easy to preview scenes and decide if you are happy with it before you move on, too.  Once complete, stories can be shared.

Sharing stories with others is simple – kids can export a video of their story that they can share.  Kids can share stories with other kids that have the Makesto app, too.  It is easy to mark your favorite stories so that you can get to it quickly for repeated viewing as well.

I really enjoyed the Makesto app.  If you are looking for a fun creativity app for your child, I would definitely recommend checking out Makesto.  I will be sharing this app with my son and helping him create his own stories!
