Association Puzzles App Teaches Kids Matching

Preschoolers love shapes, colors, and puzzles. With that in mind, PopAppFactory created “Association Puzzles” app for children aged 1-4.  This iPad app gives kids a chance to practice shapes, colors, and beginning problem-solving skills.

Colors, Patterns, and Forms

Association Puzzles gives the user three categories to choose from.

Kids can choose to work with colors, patterns or forms.

When they work with colors, they are asked to associate an item with the matching appropriate color.




Positive Reinforcement

There are many positive reinforcing words supplied with this app.  This reinforcement helps a child know that they successfully completed a task.




Match the Patterns

When working with the Patterns feature, kids can tap a picture and drag it to the matching pattern.  The image below shows a piece of cheese in the bottom row.  This image can be dragged upward to the matching box containing the yellow, swiss cheese pattern.




Matching Shapes

In this option, kids learn to match an associated shape of an item with it’s formal shape.

For instance, the picture of an orange slice (below) matches up nicely with the solid circle shape piece directly above it.

Kids can drag and drop the appropriate form to the right place. This helps improve hand-eye coordination and those fine motor skills.




This app is simple enough for kids to use alone. They will love the graphics and stay engaged while learning forms, colors, and patterns!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
