2. ABC Photo Scavenger Hunt.  Jenae at I Can Teach My Child helped her son find the letters to spell his name at the park.  A fun activity and learning experience in one! It is also good practice looking at things from a new perspective, and capturing it on camera.

3. Photo Nature Scavenger Hunt.  This is an activity that I did with my preschooler this summer.  I made a list of items found in nature, handed her the digital camera, and headed outside.  Our list included different colored flowers and rocks, a feather, a seed, a bird, a bug, a clover, etc.  She had a great time scoping out nature with her homemade binoculars.
