Photo Fun

SURPRISED!


YES!!

I'M COLD!!

PHOTO BOOK
Last night, I came across this idea when I was reading Nick Jr. Magazine (Feb/March 2008) to my girls. Alice Wilder, Ed.D., cofounder of THINK IT INK IT PUBLISHING, gives tips on making a funny face book in the Nick Parent's Connect section of the magazine. I couldn't resist. It looked like so much fun. Here are just a few of her suggestions for capturing your "kid's favorite expressions in print."

1. Warm up before the big photo shoot with a funny face off!

2. Using a digital camera, take photos of your child being silly. Call out different expressions while shooting- surprised, angry, stinky,freezing, etc.

3. Publish the book together. Print out the best shots and paste on paper. Have your child create a decorative cover and then bind with ribbon or metal rings.


Take a peek at a few more photos that we've selected below!


ANGRY! grrr!


SO, SO SILLY!


SUGAR AND SPICE...

After finishing our photos for our book, we decided to have a little fun. We tried to take our own group photo by stretching out Mom's arm. We couldn't stop laughing as we reviewed the digital photos. We had a difficult time getting everyone in the photo and my kids just thought it was hysterical.

FAMILY BLOOPERS!!

The girls and part of Mommy

Oops! Where are the kids?

Help! They're squishing me!



AND ONE LAST SILLY MOMENT CAUGHT ON FILM- DRUMROLL PLEASE..............................

Blessed Nest-
Thanks for visiting! I discovered your site yesterday and will be back in the near future!! We have so many photos that I need to put in books or photo boxes! I'm not the most organized person!! So I thought it would be a fun idea for the kids to make their own books. Take Care!
