My niece's kids love to get dressed up in costumes and I really get a kick out of the shots she posts on Facebook. How about a Photo book of them in their favorite costumes?
Shutterfly has a new app Photo Story that lets you create printed books from the iPad. An interesting twist is that you can add up to 30 seconds of audio to each page and send the book electronically to someone for free.
My extended family plays endless games of Shanghai Rummy when we get together and it typically requires at least three decks of cards. I thought it would be fun this year to create some cards specifically for the occasion.
Every day my kids used to bring home artwork from school and it was hung with great fanfare on the fridge, the windows and the doors of our kitchen. New creations took the place of the old in our ever changing gallery. Eventually, our favorite masterpieces were placed in huge bins in the attic, never to be seen again.
Why not preserve the best artwork and create a book? You can do it yourself, or turn to the experts....
When my kids were little they loved playing with wooden building blocks with their Dad. He always encouraged them to use every block in each creation. As our collection of blocks grew, this became more and more of a challenge - especially since we would seek out the most obscure shapes and buy only 1 of each because it was so fun to watch him struggle with his innate sense for symmetry.
A friend has a small teddy bear that manages to slip into her suitcase even now when she travels, and she takes funny shots of him all over the world. Why not take your child's favorite stuffed animal and create a book with staged adventures?
I saw an animated version of Good Night Moon on the web and realized that I still knew every word. My college age son is considering updating his room and I realized that the new look would forever erase the personality piled into that space.
Why not take a book you love and personalize it for someone? In this story, we say Good Night to everything in my son's room.
