Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) – When severe storms roll into town, kids may be hit hard with worry and fear. Younger children in particular may benefit from a distraction. That’s where mobile gaming apps come in.

Games like Angry Birds and Candy Crush are already bit hits with children across the Tennessee Valley but a quick search of your Apple App Store or Google Play will reveal lots of options.

Drawing Desk for example, comes in versions for both Apple and Android users and offers all kinds of drawing, doodling, stamping and stenciling options.

The easy-to-use app offers endless combinations of brushes, colors and tools, as well as image enhancements.

Finished productions can be shared through Facebook, email or Twitter with just a touch. Art can also be printed directly from the app, so mom and dad can hang it on the fridge to enjoy.
