Summer Fun – in a fun way!

I have discovered a new favoruite website. Wordle. You can use it to make subway art. You know the fun abstract shaped random words? I used it to make a Summer Fun list for our family.

I took a list of summer fun to do: crafts, trips, foods, activities, and more for indoor and outdoor fun on rainy and sunny days and created my own Wordle 🙂
I printed it on plain printer paper and will be framing it in a regular glass frame to make it dry erasable.
Here are a few things to know about Wordle:
  • You can’t save from the site, but you can “print screen” or use your snipping tool and paste into a photo editing program to print. See their FAQ for more info.
  • A space means a new word. So “Summer Fun 2012” would print in 3 separate places, but “SummerFun2012” prints together, so plan accordingly with your words. All of mine are Capitalized OnTheFirstLetterOfEachWord. :-p
  • If you want certain words to stand out (mine are summer fun, Freitas Family, and to a lesser degree, Get new Library Card, Rainsticks, etc), List the word more than once. The more you repeat it, the bigger it is. My word list looked like this:
FreitasFamily

  • You can choose custom colors. Colors is the ONLY attribute you can change without the format changing. So make sure you like your shape and then set your custom color pallette.
  • Play with all the nifty buttons & the menu links at the top of the button – It’s COOL!
  • Have fun!

 

 

I also put them in scraps of card stock in a jar so she can pic then randomly for us! Today we get…
