Since before Christmas Andrew has been asking for a new iPad. He had our oldest one and it has served him well. He had some birthday money and gift cards to use to buy it himself. He must have learned about the Apple pencil at some point because he began to ask about it and he wanted one. I got one when I got my last iPad. I hardly ever used it but then again I don’t use my iPad for that much other than entertainment. The kids are much more creative on theirs. To that end they each bought their own iPads that are compatible with the Apple Pencil. The tough thing is that you have to re-pair it with each iPad when you want to use it. So, when the kids take turns using the iPad and Apple Pencil they have to go back through pairing the pencil. It isn’t that big a deal but I figure that at some point the kids will want one for each of them.
Eva also bought her own new iPad using birthday and Christmas money. They are very excited about their new tech.
I enjoy seeing what they create using the pencil. They use a program called Recolor and I just got them the Moleskin program called Flow. It is open ended and gives the kids so many tools to create their own art. I am looking forward to what they are going to create.
