Art and technology come together in a new way with Crayola Color Alive. For my budding artist who loves all apps, Crayola Color Alive is a fun new way to interact with her artwork on a whole new level — 4D! Mom loves the integration between coloring in the real world and screen time, and K loves to bring her designs to life.
Crayola Color Alive Action Coloring Pages come in four themes: Skylanders, Mythical Creatures, Barbie and Fairies.
“Wow, it is just like how I colored her!”
Crayola Color Alive Tips
While playing with Crayola Color Alive, we discovered a few tips that made our experience better.
- Be sure to have your artists color with pressure. Areas that are colored lightly don’t translate as well into 4D.
- The Crayola Color Alive App is available in iTunes and Google Play. We started using the family’s old iPad, but quickly moved to using my phone because the camera quality is better on my phone.
- You can use any Crayola crayons to color the Crayola Color Alive coloring pages. But each 16-page coloring book comes with one special crayon that unlocks special effects on the page — it makes the pages sparkle where the page was colored with the special crayon.
- On our first pass, we missed the ability to save your 4D creations. That feature allows you to create your own scene combining real world with the virtual character. A definite must.
Crayola Color Alive is just plain cool, but it is also one of those things you have to see to get it. So we made a quick video about using Crayola Color Alive.
