In honor of the famous summer family vacation, members of Kids Listen—the nonprofit org full of the best kids’ podcasters in all the land—are publishing episodes related to road trips! As big fans of the games you play in the car on those long rides, we thought we’d make one up for our listeners. All you have to do is record your kids (or your whole family!) saying the words or sounds on the list below, email us the file, and we’ll edit it into the pre-recorded story and send it back to you. Just use the voice app on your phone, and record it as one file and email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m going to record the story, and I’ll edit your responses in, and send you the mp3. I’ll also send you a PDF of the story, so if you’re going on a road trip, you can take it with you.
Here’s what I need from you:
- A noun
- An adjective
- A name
- A verb
- A pleasant sound
- An ominous sound
- The sound of a robot turning on
- The sound of a confused robot
- The sound of an alien practicing karate kicks
- The sound of a robot asking an alien to stop practicing karate kicks
- A fruit
- And the sound of a robot eating a fruit
I know it probably sounds complicated. But if you’d like to play along, it’s actually fairly simple. Just let the voice memo app on your phone run, or turn on the recorder app on your computer, and then email me the file. I’ll take care of the rest.
I’ll do my best to turn them around as they come in. But I’m only going to be able to offer this until July 18th. After that, you can send me the files, and I’ll do my best, but I’m only guaranteeing up until the 18th.
Thanks for playing along! I can’t wait to hear what everyone comes up with!
