I had fun working on Shindonni with my daughter. We created a butterfly and played with it. We created a background. It was a little difficult for her to do because she is two and we did it on my laptop. So using the mouse is a bit hard. I think though with a little work and her own mouse (not the keyboard) she would be able to make her own drawings. She loves to color. Then to see her drawing come to life. It was a lot of fun. The smile on her face, and the directions she was giving me was so encouraging. She was creating.
They have a free side and a premium side. I tried out both. You can create your creatures for free. Letting your children learn to draw and create objects improves their dexterity and hand eye coordination. It helps enhance their imaginations and lets them learn in a fun way.
Here is a picture of one of the games you can play with the premium membership.
Shidonni provides the simple joy of drawing characters and animals, with a 21st century twist – after
drawing their virtual pets, children play with them as they magically ‘come alive’. Children then care for, feed
and play games that incorporate their drawings as main characters. Children can then share their creations
with friends and family online to show off their creativity, and participate in multi-user games. Their
drawings can also be printed on paper, simulating a traditional drawing activity, or be taken one step further,
to have their drawings printed on T-shirts!
You know, my sister-in-law is a teacher. She said that pre-school students are supposed to know how to use a mouse. I had no idea.
We believe that encouraging creativity is crucial to counter the "ready –made culture" kids are living in. Next to creativity, we are promoting values such as responsibility for your creation and friendship.
Shidonni is planned as a safe entry to "internet literacy" for kids and true to our mantra "Creative Fun for Kids
