So I am reading Forbes Magazine this week and read a fun blip about a game that uses a real physics engine and is based on the kids story “Harold and the Purple Crayon”

Having read the book with my kids we search for it (note: magazine URL is wrong), did a little reading, downloaded and installed. Warning – this simple activity is an addictive time killer! The game is called Crayon Physics.

It is a free download here. Looks simple enough to be created in PowerPoint, but has some amusing and amazing interactions with the objects you create. Have fun – but don’t waste to much time!
