Full Review:

Hanukkah has arrived, and what better way to celebrate than a virtual coloring book? 123 Color: Hanukkah Coloring Book celebrates the Festival of Lights with kid-friendly holiday imagery—including latkes, menorahs and dreidels, to name a few—to celebrate the Jewish festivities.

Boasting a palette with up to 30 colors, shapes, numbers, songs and virtual artistic tools, this app’s perfect for downtime during the holiday season. Kids can choose to color in the four provided coloring books, or kick start creative juices with freestyle finger painting—ideal for open-ended play. This artistic app follows the classic color-by-number format, with options to focus on numbers, uppercase letters or lowercase letters—great for honing basic letter and number recognition skills. The app itself is compatible with 12 languages, making it a great accompaniment to second-language education.

Once little bubalas have finished their multi-colored masterpiece, they can print, email or save the image to your devices “Photos” app. Even the littlest artists will find this app intuitive. Traditional Hanukkah music adds a festive element to color time, making this the perfect activity to keep little hands (and minds) busy this season.
