Photo fun with Kids!

Have an old digital camera lying around? Why not make use of it on a rainy day by letting your charges explore their inner photographer!  There are many different ways to manage this sort of activity.  You can direct them to take pictures of their favorite things or have them take pictures of items that begin with a particular letter.  Take it further and create a photo album book using websites such as shutterfly.com and photobucket.com.

The following websites give great ideas on how to create and make an activity such as this one fun for your charges, and also great photo book and scrapbook ideas!
