Yet, another fantastic Ipad app recommendation from my mate Danny Nicholson from The Whiteboard Blog. I absolutely love this app Puppet Pals, it’s also available for iphones but can’t help thinking the screen would be too small and fiddly for little fingers.
Simply choose your characters, a background, resize the images and when you’re ready push the record button, move your characters around and narrate your story. Within seconds you have an animated story. My daughter is only four and cracked it right away. The educational value is limitless (literacy, listening and speaking, drama).
The basic version is free and comes with the Fairytale characters, but I’m tempted to buy the Director’s pass (£1.99), which includes custom content and all the characters, so we can start using our own images; including my daughter so we can plonk her right in the stories. She’d go crazy!
Here is my daughter’s first attempt. Do bear in mind she’s only 4 and the concept of a beginning, middle and end to a story is still beyond her.
