Adding photos to the free printable articles for kids
Make it your own! All the hard work has been done for you – research, design, layout. All you have to do is to add photos. Let your creativity shine. Give it your own personal touch. And along the way you get to have a play too! You could print your photos out separately and glue them on; OR… follow this easy how-to tutorial.
All of these articles have been designed to give glory to God and to help build a faith that will last a lifetime.
1. Right click on the article you want and save it to your computer.
2. Open it up in a program like MS Publisher, Photoshop or Open Office Draw. These instructions are for MS Publisher. Set page size to A4. Make sure the article is sitting nicely inside it.
3. Copy (CTRL + C) and paste (CTRL + V) each photo you wish to use onto the article. Adjust size and position.
That’s it! Too easy! See how clever you are!
Additional Tips for best results
Too hard? Print your photo separately and simply glue it on!
You may like to laminate your masterpiece to keep it looking nice. Remember that your Compassion child lives in extreme poverty conditions. That may mean dirt floors / dusty environment / poor storage.
You may also like to add a tiny touch of cute clipart (e.g. a trail of animal footprints). Go for it.
I always send send extra copies of my articles for their Compassion teacher. I’ve had some great feedback. I also send extras of things like Bible Verse cards for our children to share around with their family and friends. Or with children who may not have heard from their sponsor in a while.
Share the love!
