My Body Book
Around the time my oldest was 15 months, I started freaking out that I wasn’t teaching him anything. But I knew he could learn. I just needed to be motivated and intentional. So naturally, I thought up a project. And I’m actually quite glad that I did.
I decided to make a body book of him!
I spent one morning taking pictures of him, zooming in on various body parts. Some pictures I took zoomed out and then cropped, but beware that zooming from a large picture can result in grainy pictures. I say take a lot more pictures than you think you’ll need.
I added the text through the site originally called Picnik, but that has since gotten swallowed by google+, but you can get the same kind of effect from PicMonkey. That’s what I use for all my photo editing these days. So easy to use!
I originally thought that I would just print this book out myself to be cost effective, but when I saw this deal on My Publisher for a free photo book, I knew I couldn’t pass on it! (Just so you know, you have to be a new customer to do this deal.)
The book was super helpful in helping me be intentional with teaching him his body parts. And, now that he’s three, it’s fun to look back on how he has changed and grown. I am definitely thinking I need to do this with Elliot when he hits the 15 month mark. I think it’s just a fun way to remember my kids for a small snapshot of time. But I’ll have to be on the lookout for another photo book deal. I’ll let you know what I find. 🙂
What is your favorite way to display photos?
