Cabin Fever Fun

We found ourselves with a Friday evening of rain, then snow, then sleet.  Our kids still love to color and draw, but Katarina had an idea.

Why not take pictures of her coloring? She set up a tripod, and took pics as she colored, then put it in the computer as a slideshow, added her pic of music and sound effects and voila!  A fun, little animation!  Now everyone in the family wants a turn with the tripod!

    That is so cool! How long did it take her to do this?

      Thanks! We thought so too! It probably took her an hour of coloring and snapping pics while we were cooking dinner and goofing off. The slideshow/movie thing was a breeze. The longest part was her deciding on music and sound effects which she had a blast with. I hope to have my turn soon! ( :

    That is such a fun idea! She must have been so proud of her work. What kind of editing program did she use? I would love to try it.

      Sorry for the long delay in responding. She did this on iMovie which came with our Mac, but we’ve been messing around and doing similar things in Picasa. I would think any photo editing (make it a slideshow) or movie editing software would get the job done. The trick is to make the slideshow short! I hope you try it!
