Bring Your Art to Life with Crayola Color Alive!!!
The popularity of tablets among the kiddos is just insane! As a kid, I did not have gadgets to play with but I had coloring books! It's amazing that Crayola has come up with a brilliant idea to mix art and technology together and create the Crayola Color Alive coloring books which allows your child to transform his/her colored-in artworks into interactive play. Crayola Color Alive brings children's coloring to life in 4D!
When I was a kid, after I finish coloring, I would cut my art works and paste them on my wall. But now, the kiddos can take selfies with their creations and even tickle them or play fight with them. The images can be visualized 360 degrees and can be modified in size. The images can even be saved in the Crayola Color Alive app to be brought anywhere and shared with friends.
How to Use
To be able to save these 4D artworks, the first step is to start coloring! Don't scrimp on the color and feel free to use the special effects crayon. Honestly, if you're too tired to color anything, the images will still come alive although in Silver color only.
