Today is photo day! Photos tell stories too. A photo is something that captures a moment. It tells a story without using motion pictures or words. Sometimes we can get a lot from the photo – but we also often never learn the full story behind a photo. Taking photos is a great way to “capture” a memory, so we can remember or even see things from a time or place when we weren’t even there. Like mum+dad’s wedding! Today we will do lots of different games and activities with a camera but we can’t live behind the camera all the time. We need to find balance. We also need to be ‘in-the-moment and capture a moment in your heart and mind, without a camera. Give a quick tutorial on how to hold the phone/camera best if you need camera. For kids who aren’t ready to hold the phone yet – or if it is too much camera holding for one day – parents can be the photographer.
Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the selection below:
Play a game from your childhood, such as hopscotch/elastics/an indoor version of skipping rope (wiggle the rop on the ground and kids jump over it).
100 STEPS: Grab a camera. Together take 100 steps in any direction. When you get to 100 stop. You must compose and frame a photo from where you are standing. See where your steps take you and what you can create! You can also adjust the number of 'required' steps as you go.
Whatsapp/share pictures with family and friends of what you did today/are doing right now.
