Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic!

8 Jul

If you go out into the woods today, you’re sure for a big surprise! If you go out in the woods today, you’d better go in a disguise. For every bear that ever there was, will gather there for certain, because today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic!

This Sunday is the official day of the “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” – a great day to grab the kids and their favorite teddy bears and head outside to enjoy a summer picnic together. For parents, babysitters or camp counselors looking for fun ways to celebrate picnic day, check out some ideas below:

  • Hold a contest for the “best dressed bear” and ask each child to vote for his or her favorite costume. Even better, invite the kids to dress up like their favorite bears!
  • Bake teddy bear-shaped sugar cookies in advance of the picnic and bring icing and colorful candy toppers for the kids to decorate with! Best part – you’re outside already, so clean-up will be a breeze!
  • Hold a teddy bear-themed scavenger hunt, using clues from the original Teddy Bear’s Picnic song by Jimmy Kennedy.
  • Help your kids create teddy bear puppets out of paper bags and craft supplies and hold a Teddy Bear’s Picnic puppet show.
  • Instead of capturing these precious memories with regular photos, try creating panoramic image “scapes” using the free UScapeit app. Here’s a picnic scape to help you get started!

Picnic time for teddy bears, the little teddy bears are having a lovely time today. Watch them, catch them unawares, and see them picnic on their holiday. See them gaily dance about. They love to play and shout and never have any cares. At six o’clock their mommies and daddies will take them home to bed, because they’re tired little teddy bears!

Happy Teddy Bear’s Day!

Fireworks, freedom and the red, white and blue

30 Jun

Times may be tough here in America, but it’s still important to remember that we live in the greatest country on earth.  We often take for granted the freedoms we have that others do not.

With the Fourth of July coming up this weekend, we are hoping to gather as many iPhone, iPad 2 and iPod touch users as we can to help spread the patriotic spirit across our great nation. Take photos, videos, listen to awesome music and be social! We also think this the perfect time to create great images of your favorite patriotic events and American landmarks. Instead of snapping static images, why not trying creating a panoramic image using the free UScapeit app? Scaping not only captures the experience but also makes the viewer feel like they are actually there too. So before the festivities start, grab take your iPhone, iPad 2 or iPod touch. You could scape the White House, the Statue of Liberty, Gettysburg, Bunker Hill or your town’s parade or fireworks display – anywhere that inspires or reminds you of what it means to be an American.

And don’t forget to share your Fourth of July-themed “scapes” with your friends and family on Facebook or via email.

To help spread the patriotic spirit, we’d love to see and share your Fourth of July scapes with our followers – so be sure to mention @UScapeit in your tweets, consider uploading your scapes to the UScapeit Facebook wall, or post the link to blog comments.

Happy Independence Day!

Five ways to capture your Father’s Day memories

17 Jun

This is YOUR day, Dads!  We hope you have plans to get out and play some golf, go to a game, and be king of the remote control. Whatever you have in store for the weekend, we’d love to see where you end up!   If you are already an iPhone user (a.k.a. “Cool dad”), or maybe a lucky dad who receives an iPhone or iPad 2 as a Father’s Day gift, you should download our free app, UScapeit.

Once you have the app downloaded, all you have to do is take a quick video with your iPhone, iPad 2 or iPod touch (check out the demo), upload the video via the app, and we’ll send you back a 360-degree image from the video you shot.

If you’re wondering what to scape, here are some ideas:

Don’t forget to share the image via Facebook or email, showing everyone how you spent Father’s Day.

We know Dads rock. You’re your son’s hero, and your daughter’s protector – until they turn 13 and then you are just SO embarrassing. But don’t worry, once they hit their twenties, you are back in their good graces.   So, we hope you enjoy YOUR day and capture the memories with Uscapeit!

Happy Father’s Day from EveryScape!

Scape The Parade!

16 Jun

Can you believe it?  THE BRUINS ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!!  It is an awesome feeling to know that in the last six years we’ve been fortunate enough to see each of our Boston teams win it all!  Of course, winning it all means a big celebration parade on the Duck Boats through the streets of Boston. Plans have been finalized to hold the Bruins’ victory parade this Saturday at 11:00 a.m.

Are you planning on going to the parade?  Well, we want to know, and we want you to share the experience of being at the parade in person.  So we’re putting out a call to all iPhone users to “Scape the Parade.”

If you don’t know what that means, all you have to do is download our free iPhone app, UScapeit, then take a short video, panning around the area you’re watching the parade from (try to get that big Cup in the shot!), upload it via the app, and we’ll send you back a 360-degree panoramic image made from your video.

You can then share the image on Facebook or email so everyone (especially Vancouver) can be jealous that Boston has greatest sports teams ever!  Also, please post the “scapes” to the Uscapeit Facebook wall so we can check them out.  Or tweet the link to your scape and mention @UScapeit, and we’ll share it with our followers.

So before you head out the door on Saturday to watch our Stanley Cup Champions roll down the streets of Boston, remember to pack your iPhone with UScapeit installed.
