Software Review:    Blue's Art Time Activities

Related Links

Who better to introduce your child to the world of art than the colorful gang from Blue’s Clues? Truth is, every child is born an artist, and no computer program is necessary to inspire children to enjoy creating. However, this program provides kids with very fun art extension activities, including drawing with Chalk Girl (pictured). 

What this title is missing is a good freeform art activity. Unfortunately, there is a draw-between-the-lines attitude in the game that doesn’t quite gel with the whole Blue’s Clues philosophy. However, this title remains fun and appealing, and boasts an introduction to the world beyond primary colors like no other. In fact, after spending a bit of time with this program, your preschooler will likely be more color-literate than you are (think vermilion and chartreuse). 

Pros:
  • Graphics are gorgeous, characters appealing.
  • Children can spend hours working towards the program's goal.

 

Cons:
  • It needs more freeform creative activities.
