Ready, Set, Splat! In this Paint Splat app, which features the hilariously quirky duck, Quack and his plucky robin friend, Chirp, kids make Quack jump on paint tubes to mix colors on the fence. Watch out for the hose!
Paint Splat offers kids the opportunity to experiment with mixing colors or match a color Chirp holds up a on a card. If the color orange, purple or green (which make up the secondary color group) is successfully created, Chirp offers some of the harder-to-mix tertiary colors. Like many of our games, this one gets harder only if the player is succeeding.
By tapping on the paint tubes, players can make Quack squirt up to two blobs of blue, yellow, and red paint onto a fence. Tapping on the hose washes the paint off, enabling kids to have a fresh start.
Kids can experiment with mixing whatever colors they like or they can try to match the color Chirp holds up.

Cute, but somewhat limited by its nature
It's cute-it shows you a secondary color or tertiary color to mix. After that though, you can't really go much further. Maybe different characters or sounds from characters would make it a little more interesting.
Used to work great. Now somethings wrong!
This was a great app for learning about color mixing.. until recently. When we open the app it turns vertically so you can’t see the whole right side of the screen now! Which means you can’t even see the color you’re supposed to make. I tried locking my screen horizontally. I tried deleting the app and reloading but it’s still a problem. Hoping this issue can be fixed! This app is an oldie but a goodie due to its simplicity. Just realized the hide and peep app is doing this too!
My son loves the show, have to admit, I do too. The game came right on time since we're working on color mixing right now. It's simple, fun, and to the point. I try to test out anything I download for my kids before turning it over to them and I believe my 4 year old will have no problem using this app alone. That was very important to me. I'm confident he'll be entertained, at least for a while, since the color mixing gets a bit more challenging with the number of colors you need to mix to make the target color. If nothing else, he will love watching Quack be silly. I look forward to seeing more apps like this one.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
