Take Your Camera for a Walk

An Imagination Station Activity

Age: All ages
Time: As long or as little as you want
Type of Activity: Art

Materials needed:

  • Camera
  • Paper grocery bag
  • Glue or tape
  • Something to write with
Next time you go for a walk, or to the mall, or with mom to get groceries, bring along a camera.

Record your visit. What catches your eye? A funny sign? A beautiful view? Grandparents holding hands? A dog walking its owner? Snap it. (Be sure to ask people if it's OK to take their picture.) Look for something out of the ordinary; something that could give even the person with you a different way of seeing the same things.

Print your pictures at home or get them developed at a store, and then lay them all out, arrange them in different ways, and see what story they tell. When you have the order you like, tape or glue them to a big sheet of paper (a cut open grocery bag works well). Add captions, and clip on the line for the Clothesline Art Show! A fun alternative to having your digital photos printed is keeping them on the computer and making an artistic slideshow of your work.
