Enlarging Pictures

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: A Visitor

This very easy trick is great for enlarging pictures (particularly those too big for the photocopier to do!).

When you have found a picture you would like to enlarge, photocopy it onto an OHP acetate. Then project this onto a wall. You could also just project a computer-based image from a data projector (or use a visualiser if you have one).

Stick a large piece of paper onto the wall, and you can then copy the picture where it is shining onto the wall.

Children love doing this, and can easily do it for you once shown how!

Free sites like www.blockposters.com will also enlarge an image for you... you just specify the size and it makes a printable PDF for you.
