Paint My Wings

When we were little tackers we would spend hours attempting to create the perfect butterfly by smooshing together a folded piece of paper filled with colourful paint and glitter. There is something so fun about colouring and creating butterflies…

Of course, there is nothing quite like the magic of working with real paint, but the situation isn't always fitting for getting out the brushes. So for all those other times we’ve just found the perfect iPad app, Paint My Wings from the clever folk at Tocaboca.

The app features three quirky butterflies with white wings and your little one can choose from an array of colors and brush textures to help fill in the blanks.

Their colouring automatically appears in mirror image on the left and right wings, which both fascinates little minds and helps to teach about symmetry. It’s a hit!
