photo alphabet hunt

This was a super activity to keep my active 5 year old busy while I was working with my other two kids. He used his digital camera to hunt and shoot things around the house that started with a letter I gave him. So, for instance, he took a picture of our cat for C and then came to show me. After I looked at it, I gave him another letter. He became increasingly creative as the project went on... focusing less on concrete objects, and more on loose associations to the words he wanted to use.  This activity was a hit and I think I might try it with numbers, colors or even feelings.

  1. What a fabulous idea. I'm hoping to get my daughter into photography later this year. She's almost 8 and I think she would really love doing something like this. Thanks for sharing
