s it time to get the kids back in school yet? Almost there. Let’s finish strong with a fun project for kids: pictures. Before you shake me off because your kids won’t sit still for another picture, there is a twist. Let them take the shots.
To ride out the rest of the “get your hind ends outside” months, I decided to create a photo challenge for my kids. You can start this on the first of the month, or any time you want to as your “day one.” Use whatever camera you feel comfortable letting the littles get their hands on. I would recommend a budget friendly kids’ camera, a cheap point-and-shoot, a cell phone or one of those fun small Polaroids that are so popular. Maybe don’t let them get handsy with Mommy’s “fancy” camera — but I’m not the boss here so you do you, parents!
