Lately my son has been really into photography. He loves taking pictures of EVERYTHING – finished puzzles, toy trains, etc. The other day we decided to turn his love of taking pictures into a family outing – a photo scavenger hunt. Basically you go around (either on foot or by car) to take pictures on a list. Where we live, the county has the Garfield Trail that lends itself really well to a photo scavenger hunt. We drove around to the different Garfield statues and took pictures of one or more of us posing with each Garfield. How fun! Eventually I will get around to printing the pictures from the outing, and we will use them to make a scrapbook.
You can do it too. Find some interesting things in your home county (or surrounding area) to use on a photo scavenger hunt. You could also use one of the readily available “Photo Challenges” (usually designed for a month or special season) or use one of the resources below for inspiration.
