Paint My Wings App for Double Doodles

Paint My Wings Double Doodles from www.YourTherapySource.com/blog1Are you familiar with double doodles?  It is a Brain Gym® bilateral drawing activity to help with eye hand coordination, spatial awareness, right/left discrimination and visual discrimination skills.  Here is a new app that facilitates double doodling called Paint My Wings, from one of my favorite developers, Toca Boca.  Of course it is cute and colorful like their other apps.  This app allows you to paint your butterfly on one side and the symmetrical paint will appear on the other wing automatically.  You can draw with both hands at the same time creating double doodles.  You can vary the colors and the type of paint used ie thick line, thin line, dotted lines, etc.  Granted it will only pick up one hand but it allows the children to try and follow with the other hand is doing.  Just a tip – this app is not meant for the children to color inside the lines it is just fun to doodle different designs.  Definitely a fun app to play around with and guess what?  It is FREE today as of 6/5/2015.

And bonus, Toca Doctor is also a great app and free today too!  Toca Boca Doctor  is a great app for young children.  It challenges visual perceptual skills, visual motor skills and eye hand coordination.  It works well as a reward – complete a certain number  of tasks and the child is rewarded with a mini game that only lasts less than one minute.
