Taking photos on a Chromebook

September 24, 2016

The camera on a chromebook works much like photo booth, but finding it is a little more tricky.

Move your mouse to your shelf, and hit the launcher(black button). You should have a search window popping up. Search "camera". You'll know it when you see it. Click it and the camera app will open.

Features:


Filters: These are on the bottom of the app. You can use them to make your pictures look different.


Mirroring: Next to the camera button there is a button to turn mirroring on/off. You can challenge yourself to take a good photo while it is mirrored(believe me it is harder then it sounds...)


Timer: On the other side of the camera button is the timer. You can turn the timer on/off. When enabled, it will wait a certain time before taking the photo.


Multi-shot: Next to the timer is the multi-shot button. You can turn it on/off. When enabled, it will take multiple photos instead of one.


Here are some examples of some of my favorite different filters:


Colorize: Makes you look like a zombie


Big jaw: No explanation needed


Boredom busters

September 27, 2016


We have all been there. So bored we could just run around screaming. We know we should do somthing about it but we just can't think of something to do.

Below is a list of what you can do when you're bored, some of them you may not have the supplies for, some of them it is very likely you do. In no perticuler order here they are:



That's all for now! Hope this helps you next time you are bored.


Say the same thing

October 7, 2016

Hello!

In this blog post will be explaining "Say The Same Thing" which is a game we like to play in this house. It is an app, and you need a Game Center account to play. Hope you like it!

Here is a screen shot of a short game my Mom and I played:

My Mom said French and I said shape. Then I said book because we have a book which translates names of shapes and other things to French. She said love triangle because French is the language of love and a triangle is a shape.
So we both came out with Les Miserables, which is a book with a love triangle, so we won.

We love this game, there is also stamps (so that we can comment on each others words) and a chat room(well...you can guess why) and a random word bag(so that you can choose a random word).


For those of you who do not have a game center account, you can also play on paper!


Before you start, grab a paper, pencil, and some one to play with! Count to three and each of you say a word. Write the words down, in such a way that you know who said what. If one of you already said a word, you cannot say it again!

The game ends when you both say the same thing, and then you win!

Knifeless pumpkin decorating

October 8, 2016

Today I will be writing about knifeless halloween pumpkin designs, all you need is markers and a wet paper towel!
Use washable markers to sketch out a design, like a jack o lantern, zombie, or one on each side!

Tips:
The markers look different on the pumpkin then on paper. Dot them on the top to test the color before using it.
Use a wet paper towel to earase mistakes with washable markers, permanent will not come off.
Try not to tuoch the marker on the pumpkin, or it will come off onto your fingers.


Optional: layer over the washable marker with permanent markers.
I will post images of how mine came out soon!

DIY hair mask

October 18, 2016

In this post I will tell you how to make a DIY coconut oil hair mask.

You will need:

Take the plate and put the coconut oil on it. Use the fork to mash it down to the bottom of the plate, when done add olive oil and mash together.

Put a ponytail in your hair, put the mask on the length of your hair and leave it in for a few hours to over night! Wash out with shampoo and your hair will be soft and frizz free!

To get this recipe, I halved the one I found online.

For the full recipe, click here!

How to stretch for the splits!

December 5, 2016

Who doesn't want to to a split? Today I will show you streches for front and center splits, trust me, they can get you down pretty far.

Do jumping jacks or run in place for five minutes before you stretch to get your heart rate up. Also, do NOT wear jeans or denim shorts!

Center splits:

  1. The wall split
  2. Lay up against that wall so that you are at a 90 degree angle.
    Slowly open your legs and hold for 1 minute.

  3. The froggy stretch
  4. Put your hands and knees on the ground, and slide down into a spit with your knees still bent. Hold for 30 seconds.

Front splits:

  1. Lunge stretch
  2. Put one foot in front of you and the other in back. Bend the front leg while the back leg is strait, and hold for a few breaths.

  3. Over splits
  4. (WARNING: Do NOT attempt until you are very close to splits.)
    Take somthing like a step on the stairs and put your front foot on it and slide down like you would into a split. Hold for 20 seconds.

Stretches for both kinds of the splits:

  1. The butterfly
  2. Put the bottom of your feet together while you are sitting down. put them as far in as you can, and try to touch your nose to your feet. Hold for 30 seconds.

  3. Straddle stretch
  4. Sit down with your legs straight in front of you. Put your legs out in a v like shape. Put your chest as close to the ground as possible, hold for 30 seconds.
    Now touch your left foot and hold for 30 seconds, repeat with your right foot. Use both methods shown below.


  5. Using pillows
  6. Stack some pillows and do your split with them in the center of your legs. Hold until you are comfortable and then remove a pillow and repeat.

Note

Sorry I have not done the weekly rebus in a while! I will try to post lots of them next week. Bye!
