Coloring Fun With Color It By Numbers plus Giveaway


Being a mom is so crazy.Do you ever get that "never going to get it all done" feeling? I know I do..daily.When I need to load the dishwasher,do the laundry,finish dinner,pack lunches and go over homework all in the 2 hours between work and the kids bedtime,I am stressed!

To get everything done in time I need something to occupy my daughter.Reagan will not just sit and watch television or play a video game,she has to have something creative or interactive to do.If I don't find something she can do in one place,she will be singing and dancing all around the kitchen which doesn't work when I am dashing around with hot pans,dishes or armloads of laundry.

When I was offered the chance to review the products from Color It By Numbers, I knew this was the perfect thing for Reagan to do during the "rush hour" at home.The site was very easy to use and the download process was quick and simple.Within a few minutes Reagan was coloring away with ease.Using the mouse she simply clicked on a color with the paintbrush and then clicked on the coordinating numbers in the picture.. just like a normal color by number.I noticed when you change colors it emits a cloud of color from the brush ,this lets the user know they have successfully selected a new color, which is great for younger artists.

As Reagan continued coloring I saw she accidentally clicked the wrong spot and started to complain.Then we noticed that it hadn't colored it anyway,so we tried again..no color.If they click on the wrong number it will not color it.I think this is great to help the child see their mistakes and have to pay attention to what they are doing.

There are 3 coloring options to this as well.The simple color by number,the more difficult version with more, smaller spaces and the freestyle version to let the imagination run wild. My daughter is in love with the Princess collection and is harassing me now to let her do more.You can chose animals,princesses or vehicles and of course the princesses are her favorite.

Once you purchase and unlock your pictures they are yours to keep.You can simply save it to your desktop like me and click it open to let the little ones play.They can even print their creations when they are finished to preserve the memories forever.
