Play School Art Maker

By Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Play School Art Maker app is a fun way for kids to freely create pictures, animated movies and story slideshows using their favourite Play School toys and craft items. They can even add their own audio narration, upload their own photos as backgrounds, and save photos of their art.

Play School Art Maker encourages imagination and creativity through open play - children are free to make and design whatever they like! There are no rules or timers.

The app is quintessentially Play School, with a hand-made aesthetic and a strong focus on storytelling. The playful sound design also features the much loved Play School piano and familiar voices of presenters Alex Papps and Karen Pang.

Play School Art Maker is aimed at kids aged 2-6 years and offers a wonderful creative experience for parents and carers to share with children.

Customer Reviews

Recording not working

Great app. My 3 yr old loves it. He can put puzzles together, choose from a variety of scenes with choice of Play school characters. Taking photos is one of the great features but the best one is recording a scene with moving characters, using voice over. Unfortunately this feature allows me to record but when I play a video back I can't hear our voices anymore. I would have given it 5 stars but this feature has stopped working. Hope it gets fixed soon.

Great app, but watch little fingers

Great app, my girls built some amazing animations with narrative. However some best video were deleted in 2 seconds. App lacks parents controls or even basic ability to access trash to undelete

Voice over play back doesn't work anymore

Brilliant app but when playing movies back the voice over can't be heard anymore. It used to work fine but has recently stopped working. Please fix this bug.
