Earlier this month, I listed some of my favorite mobile apps that encourage kids to do digital drawing. Today I want to share some websites where kids can create art works.

If your kids love to color, they'll enjoy playing with the digital patterns at Scrap Coloring.

The second part of this assignment is to draw the treasure. Only you know what the treasure is. Draw it on a separate piece of paper from the map. Post the map first, then the treasure which the viewer will swipe to see.
