Have you ever checked out the National Wildlife Refuge System? We went to a wildlife refuge park not too far from our home and it was a blast! The main reason it was a blast? We had a photo scavenger hunt.
Some of the Refuges have list of photography scavenger hunts. This one has FIVE LEVELS from budding explorer to Camera-Savvy Naturalist.
At first I thought we didn’t have enough camera power to do something like this as a family, but before I go on, I dare you to see how many digital cameras you have in your house. iPods, Phones, and really bad quality cameras count! We came up with five, one for each of us. They weren’t all good quality. See?
Sam used a camera that was 7 years old. He got some hilarious ones, and then some brilliant ones. Every one had a different list so everyone was busy looking for different things.
My list said to find a letter in nature. Have you seen those frames that spell a word or name with pictures of letters found in nature? We always thought that would be easy. Yeah, not so much. I *think* this could be a ‘K’?
When it was all said and done we had almost 200 pictures between our 5 cameras. We came home, popped up some popcorn, and watched a killer slideshow. I won’t bore you with that many… here’s just a dozen or so to get you inspired. Awesome family fun and a good memory.
