1. Color Scavenger Hunt with Paint Swatches. Give your kids a handful of paint chip cards and send them outdoors or around the house to find and photograph items that match each color. This is a great way to talk about different shades of colors, too! Idea and photograph from Sun Scholars.
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.
