Yesterday, I posted a scrapbook of the pics from the “Life of an Eanes Pioneer Child” iBook release party created using the free ScrapPad Movie Night app. Today, I wanted to showcase my very crafty and talented sister-in-law’s creations using the ScrapPad app (which just so happens to be FREE for a limited time… normally $4.99). She used the app with her 4 year old daughter to showcase their trip to the pumpkin patch.
Here is what she had to say about the experience: “This app was really fun and easy to use. I am typically a paper scrapper, but the user friendly design of this app could just turn me into a digi scrapper! My four year old daughter helped me create this book. She enjoyed browsing through all of the different elements and helping me choose and place them on the page.”
While the album was in progress, she showed it to her 13 year old daughter. Melissa went on to tell me that her teenage daughter “now has plans to stealthe iPad and create one for herself!” Honestly, what a great way to make memories and share stories digitally.
Though these photos are scrapped based on a family experience, this app-tivity could easily be translated to classroom activities (e.g. “Life of an Eanes Pioneer Child” iBook release party created using the free ScrapPad Movie Night app). If students are part of a 1:1, what a cool family activity that would be to integrate the iPad to create a show and tell for an event or tell a story.
If you app-reciate Melissa’s style, check out her art journaling and scrapbooking blog. I can’t take credit for her craftiness nor creativity, but I did play a part in introducing her to Snapguide to create tutorials for people who would like to be artisitc and crafty (check out her Snapguides here).
