Here are a couple of great little online apps, ways to satisfy a kid’s desire to be online but without the ads and noises of many kids’ sites:
- Mr. Picassohead is a simple painting app that lets users create faces in the style of the famous Spaniard.
- Jacksonpollock.org is even simpler. Just drag your mouse to create paint splotches; click to change color.
Nothing beats getting out the real paints and crayons, of course, but these apps offer a way to get in a little art (and maybe even a discussion of artists’ styles) when time doesn’t allow for the messy stuff.
