Princess Fairy Tale Maker

Here’s a storytelling workshop fit for a fairy princess! This imaginative app combines storytelling, speaking skills and art in one clever package.

Little artists choose from 32 backgrounds and over 100 adorable characters to create their own scenes. Re-size characters, move them around, or even add unique drawings with a crayon or colored pencil. Pressing “record” allows kids to tell a story as they animate the scene with just the swipe of a finger. Continue creating stories using different scenes, or opt to play with the color-fill coloring pages. With this feature, kids can fill each part of the coloring scene with a pattern, animated sparkles, or a solid color.

This fun story creation will encourage kids’ creativity, and greatly improve both their literacy and their aptitude for public speaking.
