Frenchie Draws by Bolder Games, LLC is a fun drawing app focused on The Breakfast Brigade. Children color and work through a variety of pages and activities focused on a healthy breakfast complete with eggs, cereal, milk, toast, and of course, bacon.
Children begin with a clean slate. They can select from a variety of fun backgrounds from colored to textured. With 18 different colors on a side pallet and a chalk, pencil, marker, paint brush, and crayon tool, the imagination rules the page. Each of the drawing tools produces a different style of drawing on the page and kids love the shake to erase feature - but can also use the eraser tool.
The gem of this app is the selection of coloring and activity pages. Tapping on the button that looks like a dot to dot brings up a wide variety of activity book style pages. Users find straight coloring pages, but also pages where you need to find the difference, drawing, mazes, matching, spelling, hidden characters, connect the dots, and more. All of these pages focus on breakfast.
This app really had me at my love for breakfast. Having the themed pages really added to the app. I love the drawing sections and the various textures of the drawing tools and papers. It seemed to be a higher quality than others I've seen. I also really liked that the app incorporates a lot of learning activities like spelling and mazes. It really has an activity book feel and I feel good about my son doing learning activities while he plays. His love of mazes helps there too. Being able to save the pictures to the camera roll means we can send our creations to Gramma when we're done.
Overall, Frenchie Draws is a really cute app with drawing and activities centered around the Breakfast Brigade. With its textured paper and drawing tools, the app just seems to have a higher quality than a lot of other drawing apps and is one that my family is enjoying.

This app was reviewed by Sarah Emerling, a mom, teacher, and technology coach. She spent a lot time scoping out the bacon activity sheets in this app and coloring the bacon pages with delicious red and pink combinations. You can follow her ed. tech. blog at The iLesson Lady.
