Pic Collage for Kids

One of the most universal Apps I learned about at the iPad conference was Pic Collage for Kids. It's one of the safest, most fun collage apps available. Perfect for all ages in elementary school, Pic Collage for Kids offers over 80 awesome backgrounds, hundreds of free stickers, and tons of fun fonts. Easily create amazing collages and save to the photo gallery, or send them by email or text message. One kindergarten teacher was using Pic Collage to have her students take pictures of objects that begin with the letter of the week and then create a collage. A first grade teacher used it in Math for shapes and vowels. The kindergartners will be using it this week in technology to create collages like the one above.
