Children's Day Special: Paint My Wings
Article by George Norman
On 01 Jun 2011
Back in the day, when I was an actual child and not just a child at heart, I would get some colored chalk and draw on the pavement, on the side of the house, anywhere I wanted. Things have changed a lot since then. Nowadays we have a lot of cool tech to replace such things.

Children nowadays can draw on an iPad – all they need to have fun drawing on the iPad is the right app. In this situation the right app is the Toca Boca-developed Paint My Wings. Using this app is a fairly straightforward thing the child has a bunch of colors at his disposal and he has to paint the wings of a butterly.

The butterfly starts out with white wings. The child can paint on those wings using nothing but his fingers. While he’s finger painting (and learning colors at the same time mind you), butterflies sing and talk in the background. The butterflies speak out their names and if you tickle them, they will laugh.

What do you do with a drawing once it’s complete? You can save your child’s artwork, and let him start over and come up with another beautiful design for the butterfly wings. His best designs can be shared with friends and family, all within the app.

“Paint My Wings stimulates creative play in a fun way, and lets kids from an early age create beautiful butterflies. The symmetry effect makes pretty designs easy and fun from the first stroke. Splash fruit while choosing colors or give the butterfly a little tickle while painting! And of course – save the artwork and share it with friends and family. It’s great fun, and open ended in its game design. The butterflies are a canvas that can be used, and re-used, over and over again,” explained Toca Boca.

If you would like to get Paint My Wings, you can grab it straight from the App Store here. The app is available for purchase for $0.99; it works with any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad powered by iOS 3.2 or later.
