THIS GAME HELPS WITH: - creativity

- fine motor skills. 

ABOUT THE GAME:

Artpad is an online painting program. You can choose a brush size to paint with or use the bucket to splash paint.  There are also some picture frames to choose from. You can view the paintings of other visitors as well as save your picture or e-mail your painting to others.

Bomomo

CLICK HERE to play.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Click on any of the grey pattern buttons at the bottom. The pattern will start moving around on your picture.
  2. Try holding down the left mouse key while you move your mouse around. It will make the pattern start drawing.
  3. Choose as many of the different moving patterns as you want.

ABOUT THE GAME:

Like Artpad, Bomomo is a drawing game. Although you cannot choose the colors or change the brush size like you can with Artpad, it is fun because it is hard to predict.

THIS GAME HELPS WITH: recognizing famous artwork 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Click on the level you would like to play.
  2. There will be a multiple choice question where you look at a famous artwork and answer which artist created it. If you get it right, you will be given a harder question. If you get it wrong, you will be given an easier question.

ABOUT THE GAME:

For every question you answer correctly, 10 grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Program to help against world hunger.

Pac-Mondrian

CLICK HERE to play.

THIS GAME HELPS WITH:  - hand/eye coordination

- reaction time

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Choose one of the 4 maps (Broadway, Detroit, Toronto, or Tokyo).
  2. Click on  "Play Pac-Mondrian in a new window"
  3. After the game and music are done loading, press the number 1 key on your keyboard to begin.
  4. Use the arrow keys of your keyboard to move Pac-Mondrian. You can eat any of the little squares. There are some big squares that you can eat too. Those will make the bad guys turn blue (the music will also change) and then you can eat the bad guys until the music changes back.

ABOUT THE GAME:

 

Pac-Mondrian is a combination of the popular game Pac-Man and the art style of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian. Mondrian is known for using primary colors (red, yellow, blue) and straight lines to make his paintings. Broadway Boogie Woogie, the first game map, is a real Mondrian painting. It is his way of showing the busy streets of New York City. The other 3 maps were made by the game makers to look like Mondrian's style of painting.

Broadway Boogie Woogie

Soda Constructor

CLICK HERE to play.

THIS GAME HELPS WITH: - creativity through designing machines

- learning how things such as gravity or friction change the way a machine moves

ABOUT THE GAME:

Most suitable for older kids (maybe above 8 years old). 

Draw a machine and learn a little about engineering. (An engineer is someone who designs or constructs machines.)

1.) You should see 4 blue arrow menus at the top of the game. The 2nd one changes how the machine moves. The 3rd one changes the gravity. The 4th one decides if the floor is slippery or sticky. Try changing these around and see how the machine acts. You can also change the settings on the left side of the game. The g, f, and k that you see on the bottom left change the gravity, friction, and spring strength (how floppy or strong your machine is).

 2.) You can also draw your own machine to play with if you get tired of the one the game gives you! Just change the first arrow menu from "simulate" to "construct".

The Color Test

CLICK HERE to play.

THIS GAME HELPS WITH: - reaction time
