I was playing around on the iPad yesterday and stumbled upon the FREE Video Star app. You can make your own music video in a matter of minutes!! This is absolutely adorable and I think kids of all ages would get a kick out of seeing themselves star in their own music video. The app comes with many songs but the best part is that it can pull in a song from your iTunes or a Podcast. After you pick your song, you select a frame of your choice (I liked the black and white TV…see below). There are a ton to choose from: falling snow, blinking stars, confetti, hearts, rainbow, your own words, and the list goes on. When you press record, the music plays aloud and the fun begins! Your video can be exported to Youtube, Instagram, email or sent to your camera roll. I literally made the following video in 3 minutes. DON’T JUDGE...I used Have Fun Teaching’s Verb Rap and I didn’t know all of the words. My boss and a few of my fellow ITRT friends watched me make this yesterday and couldn't stop laughing. I can't wait to try it out with the kiddos!
