Mr. Chris and the kids love to carve pumpkins. I enjoy taking pictures of them doing this yearly ritual. The goofy laughter, smearing of pumpkin guts on faces and planning of jack-o-lantern designs are always something we look forward to each and every year with our little ghouls. 

Recently, we found a very cool way to share our pictures in a flip book and wanted to share it with you. Take a look at 'A Toddler's Guide To Pumpkin Carving'! 

This book was created at the site called Britely. Have you heard of them? No? Well, let me tell you a little bit about them.

"Britely makes it easy to share those ideas in a fun new visual 
format called a brite. Brites are short, digital books filled with beautiful pictures that you can read in under 30 seconds. Britely is free to use." 

Not only are they easy to use and fun to make, they are a great way to visually spruce up your blog. But guess what? You don't have to be a blogger to make one! ANYBODY can. You can share a lesson plan, show off your recent trip to Disney, display the different cakes you've designed, create a photo story of your pumpkin patch visit, publish a story you've written, or use them in a classroom to bring out your student's creativity! There are so many ways to use this site. 

The sign-up is quick, free and easy. The site itself guides you through making the book step-by-step. The options available are appealing and not overwhelming. So what are you waiting for? Create your Brite today! 

  (Then PLEASE share the link with us so I can see it.)

Have you heard our story about pumpkin carving?
