My kids tell me I’m obsessed with taking pictures. They’re probably right. But I just can’t stop. I feel like I must capture every moment of their lives, both the big ones and the little every day moments as well. There’s little that I enjoy more than looking at old photographs. Every time I see a picture, the memories come flooding back and I can’t help but smile. Well, except for when I’m looking at pictures of the TV covered in Sharpie drawings. Or the pictures of casts covering the kids’ various broken bones. Or the pictures of the kids playing outside, covered in mud. Okay, maybe I smile a little bit when I see the mud-monsters.
Pictures tell a story. And Disney has this awesome new app called Story which makes story-telling easy and fun! It’s perfect for parents because what parent doesn’t love telling stories about their kids, right? Here’s out it works.
1. You take pictures and video with your smartphone.
2. You open the Story app.
3. Disney’s Story app does all the work for you by grouping your pictures into “moments” based on the dates they were taken.
4. You simply choose a template and arrange the pictures and videos in the order you’d like, then add captions and text.
5. With a click of a button, share your story with family and friends via email and/or Facebook!
Here’s a story I made from my daughter, Lexi’s recent cheer competition. It only took me a few minutes to do this. With Story, you could be sharing stories of your kids’ precious moments with Grandma and Grandpa minutes after they happen.
