We had an older digital camera that B asked to take pictures with. Once I showed him how to use it, the fun began. He has taken picture after picture and has had hours of fun. I can’t believe I didn’t think of it before. It has been so neat to see B get better at taking the pictures and then get creative with it.
If you have an older camera around, give your child a chance to experiment with it. Take pictures of your family, of your favorite things, shapes, letters, or colors. Make a book with your pictures or a slide show on the computer (I’m pushing for the slide show instead of printing out the pictures. =) ).
