The photo hunt: a great activity for kids! (The second batch of photos)
Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy
This is a continuation of yesterday’s post about a photo hunt our kids did over the weekend. It was such a neat little activity! It kept them busy and engaged for awhile, and the results are kinda sweet.
The photos below were taken by my youngest. I just love them.
Planning a photo hunt in your family? There are a few different ways to do it.
- 1) Give the kids a list, that way it becomes more of a scavenger hunt. You can make it as easy or as hard as you want! For example, you can ask them to find something green, something tall, something bumpy, something smooth, something funny… and see where it leads. I bet the results will surprise you.
- 2) Give them free reign in a defined area. I asked the girls to go out and shoot outdoors around the house, then come back with ten great photos. That meant they shot a bunch, and then had to really pare it down. I like what happens during that process, it means they have to be self-critical and really think about the results.
If you decide to let your kids do a photo hunt I’d love to see what they come up with! Leave your link in the comments so I can see their work. :)
