All of my children love arts and crafts.  But, Katie, my oldest, could color all day long!

So Color It By Numbers is right up her alley!

With three apps that can be run on Linux, Mac, and Windows, this online art studio is not only fun and colorful, but also educational!

The child can choose from a collection of Animals, Princesses, or Vehicles. They then choose the colored paintbrush that has a number and use that brush to fill in the areas on the photo with that color!

Color It By Numbers is a great way to teach preschoolers their numbers, colors, and the much needed skill of navigating a computer!

Once Katie latched onto it, she was hard to get away!  I thought she would go for the Princess pictures but she said she would do them later and started coloring a pelican!

We discovered that the Color By Numbers – Animal app is more than just a coloring page on a computer screen.  With music and sound behind it, Katie danced and painted picture after picture.  She asked questions and I watched her confidence climb with every completed number pattern!

We discovered that she could change the colors and images easily and that the program was incredibly easy to use!

I think this is a GREAT app for kids!  And Katie’s excitement and pride in her coloring of every animal in the app shows that we will be enjoying this for a while to come!
