With Intro to Colors, the world of color comes alive. Inspired by the famous Montessori Color tablets, this dynamic and interactive app will guide your children through an appreciation of color, from the concrete to the abstract.



· The basic foundations of color
· Primary & Secondary Colors
· Color Shades & Gradients
· To identify, match and name colors
· To mix, paint and create colors
· To seek, find and select colors
· Fine motor skills

Intro to Colors is a universal app that will work on iPad and iPhone. The app features these activities:



Learn to identify the primary colors, in a series of guided, interactive exercises using the color tablets. Your child will drag, match and tap on red, yellow and blue.


Learn to identify, select and name the secondary colors, in a number of engaging activities using the color tablets.


Learn to appreciate gradients with the color wheel and by arranging the color tablets from light-to-dark or dark-to-light.


Unleash your creativity on this blank canvas with this painting exercise. In the Montessori classroom, we provide only three colors (red, yellow, and blue) when painting.


Explore these creative artist scenes in this seek-and-find activity. Your child will listen for, find, and select the correct color as a fun way to recap their understanding of color.

* Supports English, French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Arabic and Portuguese languages.

Stays true to Montessori

This apps stays true the Montessori 3 period lesson which is essential for learning things properly. Plus the apps is beautiful. Honestly this is a better solution than actual physical color tablets. Just so grateful for this app. Imagine your 2 year child being able to learn all the colors and even grade them from dark to light within a month at most.

Beautiful App

This is one beautifully designed app. The simplistic graphics, sound, and effects help keep your attention to the task of learning about colors - primary colors, secondary colors and color gradients. There are also 2 activities - one for exploration (painting), and one to test your ability to fully integrate the material (color search). I love how the material flows from basic matching to being able to recognize the sound of the color's name. In the primary and secondary color sections, you scatter spools of color by shaking the iPad, and then match the color spools. Something I would like to see is the ability to scatter the spools by sweeping the screen with your fingers. There is nothing that makes me more nervous then a toddler shaking my very expensive iPad. Selecting a color in the gradient section by spinning the color wheel is a delight to the senses. In this section, you grade a specific color from dark to light. In the open painting section you are given only the 3 basic primary colors - which can then be mixed in intensity/saturation and together to make new colors. Correct answers are reinforced with verbal encouragement, wrong answers are not acknowledged as "wrong" but give you a subtle nudge to try again. I highly recommend this app.
