Make A Scene - Farmyard, a cool sticker app, stands out from that pack however because it's very well-done, includes a lot of descriptive words that I know teachers and therapists like (such as the spotty horse or the stripey pig), and has lots of cute animations (the farmer's wife says "Hello there my dear!"). There are also some variations to the basic barn scene, such as a field of crops and pasture.
It does have an ad, but only for their other apps, that appears when the app reopens, which is really annoying (why isn't one out of every three or five times OK?) and it has social media links that are fairly easy to get to, so keep that in mind.
** Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as Good Free Apps of the Day are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise. **

Simple and brilliant; a slam dunk for the price. A must have children’s app.
My 16 month old grandson loves this App. He loves all the different farm animals with their sounds and different scenes. A great find.
☆ WHY PARENTS AND TEACHERS LOVE THIS APP
Make a Scene Farmyard is a fun interactive game that engages children’s natural sense of creativity. It is aimed primarily at pre-school age children, but will provide hours of entertainment for children (and adults!) of all ages. Helping to develop vocabulary, fine motor skills, co-ordination and creative thinking, Make a Scene offers a great way for children to play and learn at the same time.
Make a Scene Farmyard uses drag and drop interactions, descriptive audio, fun sound effects and engaging animations to create an entertaining, educational platform. Children will have endless fun using their imagination to create their very own farmyard scenes.
☆ WHY CHILDREN LOVE IT TOO!
The game features typical items found on a farm, such as people, animals, fruit, vegetables, equipment and machinery. By dragging and dropping these digital, animated ‘stickers’ onto the different backgrounds available, your child can create a large number of unique scenes. A clear voice-over reads the name of each item aloud, and is accompanied by fun animations and sound effects where possible.
☆ NO MORE ARGUMENTS!
Are your children always arguing over who’s turn it is to use the tablet/phone? We have added multi-touch to our apps so that children can add or move multiple stickers. Great for playing along with children or allowing multiple children to play simultaneously without arguments about whose turn it is!
☆ SHARE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
As parents, we’ve all been there… your child has created a work of art and you would love to proudly display it on Facebook or simply send copies to family. This is of course difficult without getting the camera, scanner or photocopier out! With Make a Scene, once your child has created their masterpiece, at the click of a button, you can share it with friends & family via Facebook, Twitter, email, or simply save a snapshot to your device.
