Nine Days!!! You can guess that if it’s been that long since I’ve posted here that either I’m out of town or quite sick. However, if I’m out of town, I usually still post!
Last Sunday my little one came down with pinkeye. That evening both of us got bad colds. I am still not over mine. I don’t ever remember having a cold hang on this long. It’s been miserable being so weak and sick. The worst is that the coughing keeps me up at night, so I am exhausted. I feel a little better today–enough that I vacuumed this morning (couldn’t stand it any longer 🙂 ) and am getting back to blogging. Two more of my kids are sick today with my same symptoms–poor guys!
So, on to using iPad apps to encourage creativity. I have absolutely loved this aspect and seeing especially my oldest 2 boys using it. They have done some really neat things with music in Garage Band. Lately they have been using iMovie to make some very creative movies. And for stop-motion animation (mostly with Legos, of course) they have enjoyed using two different apps: iMotion HD and StopMotion.
My little guys love creating with fun drawing apps such as Drawing Pad, HelloChalk, HelloColoredPencils, and HelloCrayons. There’s also a little music program they like called Bear Piano and a little more advanced one called Piano Hero.
