Santa's Footprints

How fun for children to wake up to Santa’s footprints!  Trace a large pair of men’s boots onto paper or newspaper then cut out. Use as a stencil to sprinkle secret non-melting snow and magic dust (baking soda and glitter) to create Santa’s footprints in front of your fireplace or by your Christmas tree.

Upside Down Snowman

If it’s snowing where you are, gather family and friends and make this fun upside down snowman! While we don’t usually have to think about snow in Southern California, I remember making my share of snowmen when I lived in the midwest.

GIF is Named Word of the Year

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

GIF? What is a GIF? The word GIF, and the computer science behind it, has been around since the 1980s, but unless you were some type of media job, the chances of you ever hearing it are probably pretty slim. GIF, whose name is an acronym coined in 1987 stands for “graphic interchange format.”

Paris Fireworks

The GIF has gained popularity in the past few years and it is something between an emoticon and a video clip, and a GIF looks like a short, slightly grainy video file that plays over and over again.

“GIF celebrated a lexical milestone in 2012, gaining traction as a verb, not just a noun,” said said Katherine Martin, Head of the US Dictionaries Program at Oxford University Press USA. The verb form “GIFing” is used to create short clips like the one above of fireworks over Paris.

Tumblr has a huge amount of GIFs posted and shared between sites and GIFing is truly an art form on the Tumblr platform where seeing “moving” images is the norm. So when you see or are sent an image with the extension “.gif”, don’t be surprised to see it playing on your screen like a small video clip.
