We tend to take lots of photos in our current era, but less so home videos. Here’s a cute project to encourage home video memories, as well as to promote bonding between siblings.
The idea is to have an older sibling narrate a video about any favorite destinations for your younger tot. Our first stop was the playground and Travis described where we were (with a little bit of cheeky humor!), as well as Veronika’s favorite things on the playground, and what they were having for snack.
I then filmed several fun clips as they played on the equipment together!
Once home, I played the video back. Both kids were so delighted to see themselves on screen, little mini celebrities!
They loved it so much that we repeated the game the next day on a bike trail. Travis once more narrated the scene.
And one more the kids were smitten as they watched themselves, after. I intend to keep up this activity, since it’s clear that the kids are going to treasure these clips for years to come.
