The Osmo Learning System has been a true staple in our house, especially with the homeschool and virtual learning going on this year! I know many of you have heard me talk about my love for Osmo and have seen my posts on Instagram. For those of you who are not as familiar, you can check out another post (click here) I did a few months back where I explain a little more about the system. Basically, Osmo is a learning system that works with your Apple iPad or Kindle Fire Tablet for kids. There are lots of different learning, drawing & coding games that teach your child while igniting their creativity at the same time! It uses a base and a small mirror that you stick on the top of you tablet to reflect any of your work onto the screen so your child’s work “magically” appears right in the game… for little ones it is a truly magical experience and I love seeing my children’s faces when their hard work is shown off on display in their game and they can actually see their creation “live.” It’s just a very fun concept and I love the fact that their screen time is being put to such good use.
Every game we have tried so far has been amazing and sparks my children’s creativity and love for learning. Sometimes I see that they are learning without even realizing they are learning because they are having so much fun drawing and playing! Recently, we tried out Osmo Masterpiece which takes your child’s creativity to a whole new level! It supercharges their artistic skills and is such a fun way to draw or learn how to draw. The magic of Osmo puts an image on to the screen )you can even use your own photo or image and Osmo will turn it into a traceable line) then you trace the photo you see on the screen and the image on your paper will be a true masterpiece when you are all done! The kids can even share their artwork by sending it through email or message!
Once you start using Osmo Masterpiece and get the hang of it (my six year old is definitely a bit more comfortable than my four year old, and it does take a little practice for the younger ones) there are endless possibilities of what you can do!
We decided it would be fun to use Osmo Masterpiece to decorate some holiday pancakes! The kids had such a blast doing it.
Here is a demonstration video of Osmo Masterpiece so you can get more of the idea!
