The awesome free apps just keep coming! Please note that this one is also listed as free for a "limited time," which could mean a month and could mean two days.
Today's (Good) Free App of the Day is similar in many ways to Toontastic, if you've tried that app. It allows a child to use and control virtual stickers to create, narrate, and record their own iPad puppet show.
The app was produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and features characters from a very long-running Australian kids' TV show, so the characters will probably look familiar to our Aussie fans (and they are very cute either way.)
No ads or in-apps!
Art Maker by Play School app is a fun way for kids to freely create pictures, animated movies and story slideshows using Play School toys and craft items. Kids can add their own audio narration, upload their own photos as backgrounds, and save photos of their art.
Produced by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Play School is the second longest running children's television show in the world, now screening on the ABC4Kids channel in Australia. The show encourages imagination and creativity through open play. Designed in spirit of the show, this app encourages children to make and design whatever they like! There are no rules or timers.
Art Maker by Play School is aimed at kids aged 2-6 years and offers a wonderful creative experience for parents and carers to share with children.
To celebrate the launch of Art Maker by Play School, we're offering it free for a limited time!

* Rather than just post a list with links we're going to find one free app each day, make sure it's worth downloading, and post the info.
Here are the rules:
1) The app has to have some substance as free. In other words, it can't be a few seconds of play and then require an in-app purchase.
2) My kids or I have to like it.
3) It can't have ads all over it.
