Today I have another fun app for kids to learn shapes and colors. Shapes and Puzzles is a fun puzzle app. Kids put puzzle pieces of various shapes and colors to form a picture. Kids not only learn shapes and colors, but also fine motor skills.
Upon opening the app, kids have 4 groups of puzzles to choose from. Each of the 3 groups has 60-80 puzzles, while one group is designed for younger kids to pick the shapes as asked.
If kids choose the group with puzzles, they will see pictures of many different categories: animals, fruits, people, buildings, transportations… All pictures are made of different shapes, with all the shapes shaded giving the feel of missing wood puzzle pieces. On the right side of screen, kids can find the puzzle pieces they need in different colors and patterns. Kids can touch on one piece of the puzzle and drag it to the location on the picture there they think the piece fits. As they move the puzzle pieces into the picture, more puzzle pieces will show up, till all the missing pieces from the picture are filled with colorful puzzle pieces. Then kids will hear the name of the object and see the name spelled out on the screen.
The group labeled with abc is designed for younger kids to learn the names of the shapes and colors. Each time, kids will be asked to choose one puzzle piece of certain shape and color, like “select the blue triangle”. If kids choose the right piece, they will hear praise and move to the next round. If kids pick the wrong one, they will be asked to try again. If they want to hear the question again, they can click on the speech bubble on the right side of the screen.
Shapes and Puzzles is a simple but very engaging puzzle app. It not only teaches kids about shapes and colors, but also demonstrates how different shapes and colors can be put together to form pictures of objects that they know, like houses, boats, and cars. In some more complicated picture, kids also have to tell the size of the shapes to correctly put the puzzles together. Of course, they need some fine motor skills to move the puzzle pieces to the right spots.
Shapes and Puzzles works on iPhone, iPod and iPad. It is $2.99 on App Store. It is free today only.
