Looking for something different and interesting to do with a three year old on a summer day can be challenging but today Katie and I found something we both enjoyed. We went for a walk through the neighborhood and took photos of things that interested us. I was surprised at how many pretty good photos she took with her little Fisher-Price camera.  (That got dropped on the sidewalk in the first 15 steps out the door and managed to survive. Yeah Fisher-Price! lol)

The photos are the first part of the adventure. The next step is going to be videotaping her telling a story about her photos and/or describing them and why she chose to take that particular photo. My husband, Michael registered a domain name for her so she can have her own little blog. Should be fun.  I’ll post a link when we get it done.

So what other fun things do you do with your kids in the summer?

  1. Well I don’t have kids to report on what I do in my life, but I think what you’re doing by giving your daughter a camera at such a young age will open her eyes. Tell her to stay curious and keep her eyes open. :)

    Thanks for the comment Breanna. I think staying curious is not going to be a problem for our Kate. ;)
    She doesn’t miss a thing. I’m amazed at her ability to remember things and notice the fine details in everyday things. Such a fun age. I think we can recapture the child in all of us in our still moments.

    Thanks again for the comment. :D
