When it comes to photography, the digital era can be a blessing and a curse. Gone are the days of paying for photos to be developed and finding out they were too blurry or featuring some random object (i.e. the floor or inside of your purse). Gone are the days of stacks or boxes of photos that you’re sure you’ll get around to putting in albums….someday!
But, with digital photography, it is also very easy to let those wonderful memories captured on “film” sit on memory chips or computer hard drives. So, it’s time to take back those photos… and what better way than to get the kids involved!
This Spring Break, put the camera in the hands of your kids! Let them explore the world around them and snap pictures along the way. The VTech® Kidizoom® Camera is perfect for those little photographers with its kid-friendly design and ability to store up to 1000 photos! They can even do some “on-camera” editing with the Kidizoom’s built-in stamps, borders and silly effects to add a little personalization to their photos!
At the end of the day or week, connect your Kidizoom to your computer to download your photos. Select some of the best photos that tell the story of your Spring Break adventures and print them.
Now it’s time to grab some art supplies and let your kids create their own Spring Break Memory Book! They can use scissors, markers, stickers, glue, etc. to decorate the pages with their pictures. Simply let them attach their photos to some cardstock paper, help them write captions or information on the page and let them decorate it.
Once their book is finished, you can punch a few holes along the edge and attach the pages together with binder rings or ribbon.
The best part about this project is that they will love reliving their adventures as they create their book and share it with others. They can even take it to school to share their Spring Break adventures with their classmates!
