I’m Bored… March 2, 2011

We’re here to rescue you from hearing the phrase, “I’m bored” uttered from your kids this weekend. Below you’ll find a simple and fun project that you can work on as a family:

Photography Free for All


Disposable Camera


11×18 paper



If you’re anything like me, you probably have a disposable camera lying around your house (or one that has half of its pictures taken, but is waiting to be used up). Try giving it to your kids to see what kind of photography skills they possess. Who knows what they’ll decide to capture on film.

Once they’re finished, develop the photos and work together to create a collage that tells a story. Almost like an advertising story board. I bet you’ll be surprised by what your children come up with.

Happy Photographing,
