Color It By Numbers-Paint By Numbers for the Computer Generation


I love art, and have always enjoyed doing various art projects, especially paint-by-numbers when I was younger.  Now there is a new way to paint-by-numbers for the computer literate generation called Color It By Numbers.  This program allows your child to "paint" the picture of their choosing by clicking on a numbered color and adding it to the corresponding spot.

What makes it more unique, is that it allows your child to paint in three different modes:
  1. Color It By Numbers-Color simple pictures as prompted by numbers. Discover the artist in you.
  2. Color It To Make Visible-A pictures is made of many separate pieces. You will need to color the picture to see it.
  3. Color It In Your Favorite Colors-Color pictures in your favorite colors without prompts. Set your imagination free.
LoLo really enjoyed this program on our MAC and was excited to find the matching colors and numbers.  He liked that he could pick his picture (mostly cars) and could change the color presets.  I liked that he was learning to recognize his numbers, and find pairs-a great skill for preschoolers!

This program works on MAC or PC, and is designed for any age child given that he/she can operate basic point and click computer skills.

Disclosure: I was given a sample of this software to facilitate this review.  I was not monetarily compensated for this review.  All opinions and views are my own.
