While kids across our community are at home for the next few weeks we wanted to bring you guys some fun activities that will keep them creatively busy (and less likely to turn into a scene from Lord of the Flies).
This week we are bringing to you a Photography Scavenger Hunt! Every day there will be a different challenge/hunt that they need to complete. All they need is a camera phone or a tablet with a camera and a collage app downloaded and ready to go.
How Do We Play?
It is easy!
- Join our Facebook Group – Loving Life on Cloud 9 – each day we will post the prompt for that day’s hunt. I will also post on my Instagram Story.
- Your kids need to complete each challenge and create either a single collage image, or a few, depending on the specific prompt.
- Share their photo creations on your own Facebook page with the hashtag #cloud9photohunt or on Instagram and tag @cloud9studios. There is too many stressful posts on social media right now. Let’s fill the feed with positive and fun things our kids are doing! You can also share them in the Facebook Group to encourage others.
Check back to this blog post daily for tips, tricks and ideas to help your kids get their creative juices flowing for each challenge.
p.s. This scavenger hunt is meant for kids of all ages. Heck adults can participate as well! I do encourage your older children to help the younger ones out and each of them complete their own hunt!
Now … let’s get this party started … I can’t wait to see what your kids create.
To give you an idea of what to do … here is what my 12 year old daughter did! She went into the pantry and photographed each letter close up and then used PicCollage to assemble the letters into a collage that made her name. I would only show this to your child if they need help getting started. Otherwise let their creative minds take over! Then each collage will look uniquely different! Have fun and I can’t wait to see what your child’s name collage looks like!
Need to give your kids some hints for Day 2? Try looking at calendars, clocks, books, TV stations, thermostat, game boxes, house number, etc. There are so many numbers around your house if you start to look for them!
Good luck! I can’t wait to see what they find and create! Be sure to post their results.
