Labo Drawing Lessons App

Labo Drawing Lessons iconFree is always fun. Here is another app for young children that is free today (gone free timeline is always a bit of a mystery):

Labo Drawing Lesson for iPad (free ) provides step by step lessons on drawing animals, vehicles, people, fruit and monsters. Recommended for 3-5 year olds (typical learners), this app is suited to children well beyond 5 year olds. Drawings are provided in a step by step method with each step drawn then faded for the user. Lines can be traced while they remain for a short period on the screen. The fruit drawings provide some simple shape practice for young children.

Fun drawings that are appealing to kids, it also provides a rating on the accuracy of the drawing. The ratings are presented only after drawing and not recorded for later review. Finished products can be saved and shared by email or other social media.

This is a fun app and intuitive when drawing, but I found navigating in back to different screens not as clear. Drawings are appealing for primary aged students but do have deals that may be difficult for 3-5 year olds. As a free app this might be a fun home programming app for parents of children needing practice with visual motor skill development.

Have you tried this app?
