Music and Media Writing Apps


Here’s a list of great writing apps that help children along every step of the writing process. Writing is a complex process but we’ve found apps that help young children along all of the steps of the writing process, including ways to strengthen fine motor development. Several apps can turn your tablet into a handwriting practice.
  1. Artie’s Magic Pencil- Artie’s Magic Pencil is an interactive learning adventure that teaches children the fundamentals of drawing to inspire them to get creative both on and off the screen! By matching up the dots and tracing the shapes, children will see lines and shapes come to life! With a fun story and delightful handcrafted animations, Artie’s Magic Pencil will help children learn the power of art and of helping others.
  2. Bubl Draw- Develop your child’s creativity! Select a genre and color palette, draw with color, create music with colors and shapes.
  3. Little Writer - The Tracing App for Kid- Little Writer is super fun and so easy to use that your kids will think letter tracing is a game vs. a boring chore.
