I have seen some apps using augmented reality to turn ordinary coloring pages into 3D pictures on mobile devices. Today I am sharing an app that can do that and more. DreamWorks Color is a free app that brings coloring pages to life into 3D pictures. Additionally, kids can collect the objects they colored, and put them into a 3D setting and interact with their colored animals or other objects in the new 3D settings.
When you first start the app, you want to print out the coloring pages. You can print them out from your device directly if the device is connected to a printer. If not, you can go to the DreamWorks Color website to choose the page you want and print from there.
After you print out the coloring page, kids can color the page any way they’d like. Once they finish coloring, they can come to the app and point the device at the coloring page as directed by the app. Soon they will see whatever is on the coloring page come to life in 3D. For each object they colored, kids can collect the object in their own collection for more activities.
When kids more than one objects colored, be it the dragon, the penguin, or a background setting, they can go to the playground. They can reach the playground by tapping on the Play button on home screen. Once they are in the playground, they can pick the objects they have colored to be in the playground and they can move the objects around with the control buttons like those in video games. It is fun, because all objects in the setting are colored by kids themselves.
Another feature is the Selfie section. After kids tap on the Play button on the home screen, they can also choose Selfie. They can pick an object they colored, and they will see that the in-app camera is turned on, and the object of their choice, say the dragon, is on the screen. Kids can then take a selfie of themselves with the object. They can move the object to an angle that they like and take a picture of their 3D creation with themselves.
If you go to the website, you can see there are many coloring pages for kids to choose from. DreamWorks Color is a fun app to spark kids creativity and imagination. It is available on Apple Store and Google Play. It is Free.
