Tiny Paper Zoo
fun and awesome crafting app for kids
Kids can now make some brilliant animals out of paper with this brilliant crafting app for kids. We’ll be introducing you the the free version of Tiny Paper Zoo and also the fee-based “plus” version of it, both versions don’t differentiate much from one another though, therefore the free version might be sufficient enough for some.
One special feature about this app has to be the tracing templates.
You don’t really require a printer to be able to print out the templates, children can trace the outlines of the animals with paper or tracing paper from the iPad or iPhone – fantastic! Even if you do have a printer available, kids might prefer to trace the animals, which kind of raises the educational value of this app a little.
Take a look at the many different crafting templates, which are available for kids to choose from:[col grid=”2-1 first”]
- Seal – 5 parts – easy
- Meercat – 3 parts – easy
- Giraffe – 6 parts – moderate
- Zebra – 6 parts – moderate
- Camel – 7 parts – moderate
- Horse – 6 parts – moderate
- Retriever – 5 parts – moderate
- Labrador – 5 parts – moderate
- Rhinoceros – 7 parts – difficult
- Panda – 8 parts – difficult
- Polar bear – 8 parts – difficult
- Lion – 9 parts – difficult
- Tiger – 7 parts – difficult
- Elephant – 9 parts – difficult
As you can see, all templates and crafting instructions have been sorted by their degree of difficulty, which we find brilliant. You can easily make your own paper Zoo out of that many animals. Even if one or another part needs the helping hand of a parent depending on the age of your children, the app offers a great occupation for the whole family or even on a rainy Sunday.
Tip: Pay attention to the help displays on the edge of the screen with the words “how to” – you will find some important crafting tips for example, that you can round of the tubes and curves with a pen etc. A pen can also be useful to stick some tabs onto some impossible spots of the paper animals, by pressing the pen against it.
We have treated ourselves with some matching crafting gear for all the growing numbers of crafting apps so far, which do not belong in children’s hands of course. We advise you to get yourself a crafting kit which includes: a cutting mat, a precision Hobby knife with exchangeable blades and an aluminium triangular ruler.
Hint: You will mostly be cutting out round shapes for the Tiny Paper Zoo app, but we want to introduce you to many more crafting apps, where the crafting kit will definitely come in handy.
One thing you should definitely be using for this app is a screen protection film for the iPad or iPhone, especially if kids will want to trace the parts and shapes for the animals.
The difference between the free and the Plus version
The free version offers all animals as drawing and printing templates, those are not colored though, which most kids prefer to do themselves anyway. Whether there are going to be any updates with the free version, or if any more animals are going to be available for the Plus version, we can’t really say. At the moment, there is one Bonus animal available in the Plus version.
Tiny Paper Zoo Plus kids crafting app rating
The app is a lot of fun for young and older crafting fans. On top of that, the app is free and can be used without any restrictions. We’re going to introduce you to another crafting app soon by the same app developer, which will also amaze you!
If you want to take a look beforehand, you’ll see how experimental, unique and awesome the crafts are which are offered.
So you’re therefore gonna find the follow-up of tiny paper zoo here on iTunes called:“Awesome Paper Toys”.
Both apps are universal apps for both iPad and iPhone. The animals are bigger on the iPad and are therefore easier to craft.
