My son loves taking pictures and when I upload craft pictures I usually find one or two photos of his playmobil vehicles in the mix. Last month we had a busy day , a day when he was going to be dragged around all day as I checked off a long to do list. So to ease the ants in his pants I gave him my camera and the instructions to take lots of pictures. It was a huge success.
The next day we sat down together to upload the pictures and decide which to put in the book, going from 47 to 27 pictures . This was a really interesting process talking to him about which pictures to keep and which to delete. His reasoning was really fascinating. If you want you can make your collection into a book or slide show like we did.
Here are some of his favorite shots .
This was a fun exercise to see through my son’s eyes, and it kept him engaged on a day packed with errands. It also gave him something to be responsible for, he was so good at making sure he had the camera everywhere we went. What do you think your child would snap photos of during a regular day at your house or running around town?
