Now that the warm weather is here - hopefully to stay - it's a great chance to get outside and capture the pretty things that appear in spring. If you have a digital camera, a phone with a camera on it or a kiddie digital camera why not go out on a photo shoot.
- Discuss where you want to go... the local park, a pond or river nearby or the garden.
- Plan together what you should take: snacks, drink, sun hat, blanket for resting on or note book to draw things.
- Talk about when to go (morning time when the birds are singing, lunchtime when the sun is brightest and highest, or evening when things are covered in the glow of the setting sun.
Allow your little one access to the camera - with supervision. See what they are attracted to and help them take photos. You could focus on different things:
- Colours: Take photos of different coloured things line green grass, brown bark, pink blossom, white daisies. See how many you collect.
- Texture: take photos of different textures like rough tree, smooth leaf, bumpy path, silky flowers.
- Size: take pictures of small, medium and large and super-large things such as tiny ants, medium shrubby bushes, large fallen trunks and massive towering trees.
- Mini beasts: find and photograph as many mini beasts and animals you can find: insects, squirrels, butterflies, spiders and webs, birds etc.
Have a happy, snappy time!
