Photo shoot at DuPage Children’s Museum

September 13th, 2012

Is your child one of the new faces of DCM?

We’re updating DCM’s look for our marketing materials and will be holding a professional photo shoot in the Museum on Friday, 9/21 and Saturday, 9/22 to capture the spirit of curiosity, creativity and discovery experienced by our young visitors. Candid and portrait-style photos will be taken of children playing with exhibits, learning with their families and engaging with staff and volunteers.

You can help!

Visit the Museum on one or both of those days to participate and become a part of the DCM story. The Museum will be looking fantastic after its annual shutdown for maintenance and upgrades, with new exhibit areas to discover and explore. Come check it out and bring your best smiles!

If you want to participate, join our event on Facebook or Google+. Also, please take a minute to fill out this form to help us have the best photo shoot possible.

We hope to see you there!

Photo cling

August 17th, 2010

On Wednesday, August 18, Walgreen’s is offering a free photo cling, one per photo account. This is part of their seven days of deals going on this week. Note: If you are checking this on Tuesday evening, you will see their deal for Tuesday, but after midnight the photo cling should be their featured daily special.

Now, with a new school year just around the corner, I immediately thought about far more than just that cute picture of my kids languishing on my camera’s memory card.

These photo clings can be up to 11×17 in size. So, how much educational content can you cram into that space?

Here are some ideas I came up with:

– Time line figures

– Maps

– Diagrams

– First day of school photo

– School information (your schedule, expectations, inspirational quotes, etc.)

– A serene picture to serve as a mental pick-me-up on “those” days

– A flag

– Flags from around the world

– Presidents

You could even make a game out of it. Match countries with their flags, put presidents in order, put together a diagram of a flower or a model of the solar system.

I can seen your wheels turning, so go order your cling for free (you will have to pay shipping which is $5.99. Most deals you can opt to pick up in store and forgo the shipping charge, but that doesn’t appear to be the case with this product), and please share your ideas here or on our facebook page as well. And, if you decide to use it for that memorable picture from your summer vacation, it will also be well used.

Free and inspires creativity, that works for me!
