Willy Nilly & Thumper’s Backyard Adventure for April: Photo Scavenger Hunt
Why it’s great: This adventure teaches observation, camera skills and creative thinking. This is a family activity that gets everyone out into nature. It’s lots of fun for everyone!
What you’ll need: Digital camera or phone with camera (disposable cameras may be best for small children); list of items to be found (see below); pen or pencil to check off items; small photo album or notebook (optional)
Give each child a camera and explain how it works. Let them take a couple of test photos.
Set out on an adventure in your neighborhood, a park or any outdoor space.
Encourage your children to take a photo of each of the items on the list. If they don’t find them all, that’s OK.
Print the photos and display them in a small photo album or paste them in a notebook so everyone can admire the photography and remember the great day.
