Want to create a picture story book with your pupils, but your artistic skills are not up to the standards of Monet, Tony Hart, or Frida Kahlo? We know the feeling. This is why we are so enthused about Feltboard App for iPad. Built upon the same principles as Fuzzy Felt Board kits (see here, as an example), the app is teeming with characters, costumes, backgrounds and props all aimed to support ideas, discussion and creativity.
The app enjoys a simple user interface that allows independent exploration allowing for easy control of the images. Images can be saved into the camera roll, and then exported easily to other apps (such as Book Creator, so a picture book can easily be created), or used as a stimulus with pieces for popular songs, stories and rhymes including 5 Little Monkeys, Old MacDonald, Insy Winsy Spider, 3 Billy Goats Gruff and more.
Feltboard for iPad is priced at £2.29*, available from the Apple App Store by clicking the icon below.
