The kids have been hard at work making claymation characters. Mom made a practice character, Dad took it apart to teach the kids how to make their own. Then each kid got to make their own characters with bones. We started with characters with no arms as they are an easier place to begin.
Then the kids each got to practice a walking sequence with their character. Creating the walking sequence consisted of taking a picture, moving the character, and repeating over and over until you have the desired number of pictures.
What resources do you use when you are preparing for emergencies?
There have been many events occurring around the globe in the past few days and I have been following many of them with great interest. Some of these events affect us directly and others indirectly, but I prefer to be informed so I can make the best decisions for my own family.
Using Technology To Prepare For Emergencies
I have found myself using technology to keep informed about the things happening around the globe and having access to technology (internet, computers, tablets, cell phones, etc) has helped to give me information that I need to prepare for and survive an emergency or natural disaster.
Here are some of the resources that I have been using to follow the emergencies (earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes) of the past week.
If you have access to the internet, then you have access to all these free resources that can give you important information in the event of an emergency.
Sometimes it is not always possible to visit a zoo and see the animals. We don’t even live near a zoo, although we do have a few fun places near us (like: Undersea Gardens, Ocean Discovery, and Butterfly Gardens) that the kids enjoy on occasion.
I thought since we can’t go to the zoo, we can visit a few animal cams and watch the animals at our leisure. Pull up a chair and enjoy the animal cams with us.
