Bike Photo Safari

Materials

  • Bikes and bike helmets
  • Digital cameras (one per team)
Directions

This party is a picture hunt on bicycles.

  1. Each team of two or three kids gets a safari clues list and a digital camera.
  2. The team must use the clue list and photograph the location or item they believe is correct within a determined time limit.
  3. When everyone returns, someone reviews the photos on each team's camera to see how many clues they fulfilled.
  4. Photographs of correct locations or items will be judged for artistic quality as well as accuracy.
  5. Award prizes in many different categories: most artistic, picture furthest off the clue list, most locations correct, etc.
  6. Parents and kids can work together to make a slideshow of their digital photos from the adventure, or kids can make an album or scrapbook of the printed images.
  7. The party continues with lunch or dinner to celebrate everyone's creativity in the safari.
Note: Make sure everyone participating wears a bike helmet and understands bicycle safety rules.

Don't forget to hydrate! Forego sugary juices and sodas and pack a bottle of water in your child's lunch. If your child likes a little more flavor, spice it up with lemon, lime, cucumbers, or fresh fruit.
