Kids Photography Scavenger Hunt

Kids Photography Scavenger Hunt

If your kids are really getting bored and ansy at home, this may be a great project for them.

Today, everyone has a camera at their fingertips thanks to smartphones. It seems like everyone loves taking pictures as well. Right now it also seems that, thanks to social distancing, and during this time of school closures, many kids have some extra time on their hands.

So I’ve created this kids photography scavenger hunt project. My aim is to help kids learn a little more about photography and to give them something fun and creative to do at home. If they want, with the help of their parents, they can share their shots in the FB group.

In the next couple of weeks I will create a post a week for the kids photography scavenger hunt. In the post I will teach a small photography lesson to the kids. I will also give the kids a list of words. The idea is that the kids (or anyone who wants to participate) take a picture for each word on the list. For example, if one of the words on the list is "car" I could take a picture like the one below.

I simply took a toy car, put it into a snowbank and took the picture.

Other than keeping it kid friendly and safe, of course, there are no rules - be creative and think outside the box. Kids, be sure to share your ideas with your parents so they know what you are up to. :)

It's for kids of all ages. It's free. And it's a lot of fun!

Here are the details. I can't wait to see how creative your kids are.
