Every year we go down to the Oregon Coast and rent a beach house and relax. This year I got to bring along something extra! A brand new Nikon D3300 ! Nikon wanted me to check the camera out and I jumped at the chance, I started playing with it as soon as it arrived. I knew that when Nikon asked me to share the photos I took with the D3300 with my readers I wasn’t just going to throw them in a post, I wanted to show you how I used the vacation photos for a simple but very effective literacy activity. Storytelling.
Before you can make your box you need to shoot some great photos. I am not a photographer but I have always enjoyed taking photos and know that taking many is a great strategy for getting just the right shot! Here are some of my favorites that went into our storytelling box – trust me these are just a few that I took.
Once you have all your favorites chosen print them out or have them printed at a photo lab. I am a last minute sort of gal so I did it myself. Very late at night… don’t know about you but that is my time to check off all the items on my to do list.
Gather your materials. You will need the photos you took, a box, some card stock, glue, and scissors.
Cut the photos out and glue them onto the card stock then trim. Pop them in the box and set them out for your little storyteller.
Do you use your family photos for activities? Tell is about it on our Facebook page!
As stated above I was provided with a Nikon D3300 in return for sharing this post.
