12 Days of Christmas iPaddery – Day 3

Day 3: Personalised green screen Christmas cards (all phases)

Green screening is a great technology that children love. You just need a bright green (or blue) plain background and Do Ink’s Green Screen app to make it work.

Get your children to select a great Christmas backdrop (or photograph their own work), if you have Christmas costumes get them to dress up appropriately then use the Green Screen app to photograph themselves in their chosen Christmas scene. Here’s one of many we made at Blackmarston:

The finished photograph can be turned into a printed Christmas card using whatever software / device you are most comfortable with.

You could go on and create a piece of video in the same scene with the child giving their own Christmas message and attach that to the card with a QR code to bring the card to life. More about that on day 7.
