Finding ways to entertain kids isn’t easy. And finding ways to entertain kids for more than 30 minutes at a time is even harder! This photo scavenger hunt is guaranteed to keep the kids entertained indoors for an entire afternoon. All you’ll need is a camera or your phone for your child to use. Have your child take photos with the items, instead of just the item itself. After the fun activity is finished, you’ll be able to take the photos and turn them into a memory book to remember the fun times you had together! Enjoy this photo scavenger hunt, print out and color in our free family portrait coloring book page, and then have the kids call their grandparents for a personal history interview if you're looking for hours of creative fun in your home.
