Introducing Artie's Magic Pencil - Plus Giveaway

I want to tell you all about this brilliant new app we have just been introduced to. Its called Artie's Magic Pencil and I think its such a good idea for a app. 

Artie is this cool little character that has to save his world from a monster who is destroying it. He does this by using his magic pencil to rebuild by joining the dots. 

Take Artie on the adventure through the lands and Artie will come across something that he needs to rebuild and a dot to dot will come onto the screen. Your job is to then use your finger to join the dots and complete the picture and then watch it come back to life. 

Its a brilliant app for encouraging children to draw and get creative while also providing them with fine motor skills and good hand and eye co-ordination skills. From my childcare experience I would happily recommend this app to help with those very important skills that they need to learn when growing up.

Not only is it educational but it looks really fun to! Lily is a little young yet and so we haven't tried it out for ourselves but I would happily get it Lily when she is older as I know this will provide her with loads of learning and entertainment.
