Here is a fun activity to do in the Fall using Kidpix. Scan or take digital pictures of real leaves on a white backgound. Bring the images into Kidpix and save each one as a separate file. (I have a red, yellow, orange, and green leaf file that I use and I let the children pick the color of leaf that they want to use.) They use the wacky paint brush and stamp tools to turn the leaf into a person. I always use this lesson to teach the children how to “flip” the stamps so the the ears and feet go in matching pairs!Here’s an example, and yes, the child told me it was Indiana Jones!
I took individual pictures of each picture on an orange background, and used Smilebox to create this little slideshow. Enjoy! Here is the link to the Smilebox. Please visit our page and leave a comment! Thanks!
