Video Thank You's

I'm throwing out a bunch of random posts hear before I sign off.  I love to have my boys write thank you cards, but recently we have decided that making thank you videos is more fun (for us and the recipient).

So, if your kids need to say thank you for any Christmas gifts they received, here's an easy and fun idea.  We use the free Lego Movie Maker app on my phone.  You just take picture after picture, choose your music, and then you have a fun stop motion video.  It's meant for making Lego videos, but you can really use it for a lot of different things.  It's pretty sweet and easy to use.

We've done thank you pictures before, but this was even more fun and it only took a few minutes to put together.  If the person you're sending the video doesn't have a smartphone, you can still just email them the file.

Thanks for stopping by.

What a cool way to say thank you. My 8,5 and 3 year old all loved your video and I had to replay it again for them. Thanks for sharing this with us and I hope 2014 is good for you and your family. I'm going to miss reading your blog but I can understand why you've made this decision. HAPPY NEW YEAR all the way from Australia.

I had my son do a 'thank you' video for a gift he received from someone we rarely see, then I put it on Youtube and sent our friend the link. Perfect. :)
