Busy Shapes & Colors Gets Kids Learning About Shapes and Colors with Fun Puzzles

The best educational apps for kids don't always need fancy bells and whistles to be engaging. They can be simple and elegant yet effective and motivating. Busy Shapes & Colors is a great example of such an app. Created by Edoki Academy, the app is a fun virtual playground in which toddlers and preschoolers can learn the names of 11 shapes and 11 colors.

Put the Shapes into the Correct Holes

In Busy Shapes & Colors, kids learn to recognize and sort shapes and colors by dragging colorful shapes into the correct holes. As they do so, the app says the names of the shapes and colors out loud. The difficulty level increases gradually as kids progress through 150 seamless levels and encounter new shapes and colors. They will also come across various obstacles, such as machines that can change a shape's form and color.
