Whenever I pull out the camera, my kids immediately scramble for it. I thought it would be fun to focus their enthusiasm and go on a photography scavenger hunt. This is an easy kids activity for indoors as well as outdoors.
Kiddo loves to play with the kid camera his grandparents got him last year, but in general he doesn't stay focused long enough to take specific photos. Since the theme this week was yellow, I asked him if he wanted to go on a photography scavenger hunt. Even though he didn't yet know what this was it sounded cool and he answered a resounding, "Yes!"
So...... he took photos of things that are yellow. When we loaded the pics from his camera on the computer they were all fuzzy. Not sure if this is a quality issue with the camera or not, so I let him take some photos with the good my camera. He really enjoyed this project and it helped him settle down and concentrate on how to use a camera effectively.
Here are a smattering...
