My daughter (4) likes Doodle Toy on Android and Doodle Buddy on iPhone/Pad. My other daughter (8) likes the Princess Dress Up app on iTunes, but it's a bit limited unless you like designing wardrobes for virtual princesses. She enjoys Minecraft too of course.

For older children, they might like to have a look at Paint.net. Which is a sort of free PhotoShop. If they like the idea of playing with photos, adding special effects and all those cool photo morphing techniques, then this is perfect and very highly recommended - by experts!

Siobhan, what does your daughter like about Minecraft?

I've had a quick play about with it on my smartphone and it was kind of cool, but I was still unsure whether my 7 and 5-year-old girls (who like the *exact same games as your 2!) would get much out of it...

I think that Pixel Press is, hands down, the coolest app for kids. You can read more about it in this Q&A thread (with answer provided by Robin Rath, the guy who is developing it.) After you have seen this, you will want to fund it on Kickstarter, guaranteed! Come on, which kid wouldn't like to draw his own video game!

I suggest colAR Mix as a great summer time creative activity App yet gives your kids off-iPad break at the same time.

This app has an innovative and engaging way to encourage children to color on paper. After the coloring, you can surprise your kids by showing the page through iPad camera and the characters will pop out like a 3D animation puppet show! Here is a twist. The characters are colored in with your kids own creation!

To know more about the mum & kids' experience with colAR App check out this review.
