Kidding Around {3}
A Summer Memory-Keeping Experience for Kids

Back by popular demand, Kidding Around {3} is the place to be for kid-style summer hijinks!

For way less than the price of summer lessons, camps or even taking the family to the movies, you get six weeks of playful prompts to entertain and engage your youngster during those long, hot, school-free days.

Big Picture instructor Tami Morrison brings her unique brand of fun to this class, along with a child development degree, 15 years of teaching experience, and 26 summers of “mommying”. That adds up to plenty of clever ideas to keep kids amused over the summer break. They'll be having such a blast documenting their exploits, they won't even notice that they're honing skills in writing, creative expression and memory-keeping.

This memorable project is sure to make a splash with the pint-sized creative in your life…and be a treasured keepsake for years to come! Sign up today – all the cool kids are doing it!

Listen to Tami's introduction of Kidding Around {3}:

Tami's class includes:

  • Summer fun activity email prompts, sent to your inbox Monday - Friday (archived in the classroom)
  • Pre-class assignments, available to you immediately upon registration for class
  • Supply suggestions with live links to product resources
  • Welcome note from Tami in the classroom
  • Audio message (for mom) available as streaming audio, downloadable MP3 file and transcript
  • Fun weekly video messages (for the kids)
  • Private posting gallery to share your work and view the work of your classmates
  • Email access to Tami
  • Message board to share your thoughts with your classmates
  • A live chat with Tami for moms (summer parenting questions and ideas)
  • A live Skype Q&A with the kids

Note: The content of this class is designed to be compatible with the sky blue version of the Smash Journal, and assignments will coincide with specific pages in that journal. However, purchasing the Smash Journal is optional, and all assignments can be done in any type of notebook, journal or sketchbook.

Age Recommendation: Children of all ages and abilities are welcome! The art journaling nature of this class makes it most ideally suited to school-aged children capable of written expression, but it can be adapted for pre-writers, with parental assistance.

To Our Friends Down Under: If you live in the southern hemisphere, where it won’t be summer for another 6 months, remember that forever access will allow you to “save your seat” in class, and participate when summer comes to your part of the world.

BPC is offering a limited number
of Smash Journals for purchase.
