IdentiKat

We have a soft spot for apps that foster creativity in kids. We realize that we do not review as many of them as we'd like, but when we do find one we try our best to share it with you. So, here we are with our app pick of the day: IdentiKat.

A beautiful puzzle/creation-based game, IdentiKat tasks you to put together colorful "kats": quirky cats made from laces, scrap fabrics, old buttons, and other materials commonly find in grandma's sewing box.

Quirky.IdentiKat is an immersive app that lets you assemble colorful cat collages.

Paws Off, Please

Advertised as a game for creative kids and cats, IdentiKat provides an interactive and immersive experience. Even on the home screen, you can tap around to find a number of animated cats hidden away in a nighttime cityscape. The cats meow and animate a bit when they come out, which is a delightful sight.

Faces iMake - Right Brain Creativity

I'm sure that many of you have been told (or have told your child) to not play with food. Honestly I was never one to do it (I was more interested in chomping down my mashed potatoes instead of sculpting them - I know, I was a boring kid), but I admire people who grew up making art on their plates for their imagination and resourcefulness. I think that as long as parents discuss with their juniors about when or where it is appropriate, playing with your food is actually a great medium for cultivating creativity.
