My daughter, Lilo's, favourite show right now is Artzooka. It's the Canadian Mister Maker who's a little more digital - using scanners, digital cameras and video cameras. So after he made some pictures using a scanner Lilo was bugging me to scan something. Finally one day we did and it was a fun.
She first cut out a picture of a butterfly. Then we put it on the scanner window and then put printed paper behind it and hit scan. Then we tried different paper, pieces of fabric, clothes, a clown wig, beads and whatever fun things we could find. I'm not sure who was having more fun with it, her or me.
If we did it again I would cut out the shape on a darker piece of paper instead of just white, but it still turned out pretty cool. We didn't print them out but now that I put them all together I think it would make a cool piece of art for her room.
