|Ms. Bower, Roving Reporter HQ, |
a mobile 'booth' at our school Carnival
Well, if that isn't a picture of fun I don't know what is. Haha! On Friday, we had our end of school year Carnival and Field Day. My 'booth' was mobile as I walked the school supervising 15 2nd-5th grade videographers as they videotaped events in Pre-K through 5th grade classes and on the field. In this post, I want to share my process, resulting photos and Cricut Design Space files for our 'uniforms'.

and Press Pass ID Badges
Each student received a hat and Press Pass ID Badge. The press passes have a Flipgrid QR code to the secure website (intentionally blurred in this photo) where the videos will be posted for families and staff. Parents scanned the QR code with Snapchat (primarily) so they'd have the link. (P.S. With Flipgrid, it's easy to build community and share with those in your organization. Interested? Scan the QR code in the badge at the end of this post to go to Flipgrid for more details.)
|Student Roving Reporter Hats|
Hats: I bought packaged 'Happy Birthday' hats with flexible, accordion-type headbands. I cut off the BI and AY as they stuck out past my design. I designed the WiFi symbol from elements available in Cricut Design Space (through DS Access) and spliced, welded and modified until I liked it. Here's the link for the design I glued on the front of the words 'Happy **irthd**' on the hats:

designed in Cricut Design Space
My Shirt: Next, I modified that design to create my shirt for the event. It has my school's name and 'Roving Reporter HQ' as the students periodically checked in with me when they saw me around our campus. Note that I ironed the design on a shirt that matched the second color in the student hat design (lime green, in my case). Here's the link to the Cricut DS file:

If you have any questions or issues accessing these files, please let me know. I hope you enjoy this makerspace project.
All the best,
