The perfect rainy day survival kit: let Ted take you on a crafty adventure with the DK Kids' Crafts app!
Based on DK’s award-winning activity books, this charming app will delight both kids and parents alike. With 3 interactive activities for the iPad and 3 hands-on tasks that let you get knitting, sewing and drawing off the screen, the DK Kids’ Crafts app strikes the perfect balance between quick-fix fun and games, and inspiration for children to get creative at home.
In keeping with DK’s unique designs, this app improves traditional activities by making them interactive and easy for children to do on their own. You can cross-stitch without having to worry about hurting yourself on a sewing needle, create colourful, digital, “furry felt” scenes (with themes that include the sea, deep space and the countryside) and give your very own “scrap bag” a smiley (or grumpy) face!
If you like to knit, follow the step-by-step instructions to create your very own Ted – he’s great for cuddling – or follow 6 simple steps and make a swashbuckling Pirate Pete beanbag – shiver m’ timbers! With so many possibilities boredom will be out of the question!
Scrap bags: Design your own scrap bag on-screen or use it to try out a new design that you can create in the real world!
Cross-stitch: Tap on a pattern, your choice of yarn, and a type of stitch to start creating. You can even use a blank canvas to design your own cross-stitch from scratch
Furry felts: Choose a background, drag the shapes across and move them around to make a scene that tells a story. Aliens, boats or horses…take your pick
How-to off-screen activities:
Pirate Pete: Make your own pirate friend who's full of beans!
Rainy day doodles: You won’t believe what you can do with a doodle! This activity shows you all the different types of patterns you can make with a set of felt tip pens
Making Ted: Last but not least you can make your very own Ted. Each step is carefully laid out so you have everything you need to make your own bear friend
Saving your designs: Save your creations to your iPad Photos and share them with your friends!
