Here are some ideas and activities I have come across to help keep your kiddos busy early this summer.
Backyard photography or photo scavenger hunt: encourage something creative by giving your kids the camera or smartphone and send them outside with assignments or a scavenger hunt. You could even do this inside if it is a rainy day. Some easy tips for children when photographing: get low (which they typically are already), get close and try different perspectives. Tell them to get creative!
