Photo Scavenger Hunt!

Women’s History Month is almost over and we have one more incredible female to honor and a fun activity she inspired us to create. Dorothea Lange was a famous photographer who used her camera to capture interesting perspectives, and help people think about daily life in a new way.

Today we are doing a creative scavenger hunt activity using a camera or the camera on your phone. This is a great way for your whole family to get outside and make a walk even more fun and interesting! These are also great exercises for your children to do to continue to learn about colors and shapes, and to be more observant of the world around them.

Take a camera and try some of the following activities:

  • Have your children find one thing that represents each color of the rainbow, like a blue flower or a green leaf. Take the individual pictures, print them out and look at the beautiful rainbow you have created!
  • Look for letters in their name in the natural world, a stick that looks like an L or a tree root that looks like a V etc.
  • What different kinds of shapes can you find in the natural world? For example, can you find a triangle, square, or a circle to take pictures of?
  • Try to tell a story just in pictures!
