With technology being such a prevalent thing in today’s society it’s nice to be able to combine it with the more traditional methods of entertaining and interacting with your children.
I think that the Crayola Colour Alive has done that.
While the girls coloured in their different packs, I downloaded the app.

Once the page has been coloured in, you use the app to take a scan of ‘The Special Effect’ pen, this is what makes the magic happen.
I put the app on the iPad to start with and we couldn’t get it to work but it worked on my android phone straight away.
You choose 4D from the options you see in the corner and…
The sparkles on the page are a bit from the effect and your creation then stands up on the page! As you can see the colours from the AR Medusa are the same as the colours used on the page, so it is not a case of a few pre-programmed characters appearing on the screen.
This made it much more special for the girls, the felt like their work had come to life.
Once you have scanned your pen and page you can then move your creation anywhere you like!
