Scavenger Hunt List
Give each participant a scavenger hunt list and a time limit.
Sometimes it seems rather hard to find activities that your tween and teen grandchildren are interested in.
And, it seems like they are focused a lot on their cell phone.
Well! Tap into that interest and do an activity with them that REQUIRES them to use their cell phone.
Do a photo scavenger hunt with them where they use their cell phone (or yours) to take pictures.
This scavenger hunt is not meant to be a race to see who can get finished first. No siree, Bob! This activity is more about using common things for subjects but taking unusual pictures of them. And having fun, too.
Let’s say that one item on your list is a purple flower. To make your picture unusual, take a picture of it up close. REALLY up close (a bug’s eye view). Think outside of the box of how to take a unique photo of it.
Other ideas for unusual shots include:
Put the item on the ground and you stand on a stool.
Try different angles with your phone.
Take a picture of the item’s backside/underneath side instead of the front.
Throw the item in the air and take a picture as it falls.
Take a picture of the item’s shadow.
Shoot straight up at an item.
Get down low. (Worm’s eye view!)
Take a picture of the item’s reflection in a mirror or window (without you being in the picture).
Take a picture of something reflecting on a pond or puddle of water. (If you don’t have a puddle nearby, make one! All the more fun.)
Cut a hole in a piece of paper. Take the picture through the hole while capturing a little bit of the paper as a border.
Hold an empty picture frame up to your item to take its picture.
You can use the list provided or make your own. Encourage everyone to make a photo gallery of their photos and maybe to enlarge and frame their favorite photos to hang on the walls.
