Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt

The girls and I have had such fun on our photo walks, that I decided to show them a new way to use their cameras.  It was warm and windy and very spring-like today, so I made them each a list of things to photograph and then sealed them into little zip top baggies and hung them on a yarn necklace.  I had to make Rae's list very simple, so that she could read it herself!
We loaded up and headed for the park.  Katherine was convinced that there would be nothing to take pictures of because it is winter and everything is dead and boring.  She changed her mind. Her list made her notice little details and then suddenly, everything was interesting.
Rachel was just happy to be outside and to have a camera in her hand.  She wandered around shooting pictures and stopping occasionally to consult her list. Most of her pictures were even in focus!
Rachel had 6 items on her list because she is 6.  Katherine had 10 items because she is 10.  And me?  I didn't have a list, but I had no difficulty taking 41 pictures!


The unanimous opinion of this photo scavenger hunt?  It was great fun!
