More adventures with Barnaby Bear!
My children are currently in reception, each week one member of the class has to look after the class teddy, Barnaby, for the weekend. They document the weekend in a book with pictures and information about their adventures.

Charlie loved it! We used Chatterkids and iMovie. He was so proud of what he created and can't wait to show his teacher and class mates! Although my wife still filled in the book, using technology gave Charlie the opportunity to tell the story of his weekend in a way he couldn't possibly do on paper. Here is his video -
