Looking for some summer tech & visual motor fun for kids?
Paper Critters Lite is the free version (full version is 1.99) of this app which features creating your own digital creature on the iPad, then printing the creation, cutting and assembling it into a 3D creature! This app is based on the online digital creation tool – Paper Critters , an online tool which allows 3D creature creation, printing and assembly. Most appropriate for elementary aged students (8 year olds and older) with ability to create and navigate a variety of tools and features. Certainly parents or therapists can assist with creating or printing out templates or creations from the printer for students to cut out and assemble.
Here some images of the tools and products:
Existing templates for the above pictured creatures are available within the app to print and assemble.
Here is a video with step by step instructions about the apps features:
Some fun paper cutting and assembling fun for the summer (don’t let them know it works on fine motor/visual motor and visual perceptual skills)!
Have fun creating this summer!
This looks like a great app! Do you know if it works on the original iPad or only 2 and above? I’m finding more new apps are only for 2 and above.
Good question and good news. I believe the iPad 1 can be updated to 5.1 OS system. Paper Critters requires 4.3 OS which means that it will work on an iPad first generation.
Good question, thank you for your visit and question!
