This great new iPad app is even better in that it lets children have the mosaic experience without the mess and cleanup. This app is called Kids Mosaic HD and it involves replicating 36 different images or your child can just use this iPad app in a free play mode to come up with their own designs.

The Kids Mosaic HD app has two modes of play. We really liked the adventure mode which offers children the ability to select their own mosaic image from a collection and then recreate it using colored tiles. Nine tile pieces are used to create the pictures, they include a square, four triangles and four quadrants. With a tap and drag the tiles can be easily moved into twelve different colors. Once children have selected their mosaic image they can begin moving the pieces on the iPad tablet screen. A more advanced game method for older children can recreate the picture by counting the number of pieces and then move the tiles to the correct space they belong. Continue reading
