Photo scavenger hunt games
Being constantly photographically creative with your children can be a hard task and sometimes quite daunting.
To get the ball rolling more easily I recommend trying out some photo scavenger hunt games.
The best thing about photo scavenger hunt games is that they can be done anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you’re stuck at home or going for a walk, there’s a photo scavenger hunt game to be played!
The name game is an easy photo scavenger hunt game to get started. All your child needs to do is find objects that begin with each letter of their name and to take a picture.
The photos then can be put together in a montage using something like Layout for Instagram or Adobe Spark post.
We played this photo scavenger hunt while taking a walk the other day. We thought it would be good to take a selfie for the first image as it set up the rest of the montage nicely.
This is another great photo scavenger hunt game to play at home or whilst taking a walk. The task is simple, find objects that are all a particular shape.
We started off simple by looking for circles. Some objects can only be seen as circles from a certain perspective which is worth considering. We arranged the objects altogether to make the circles visible and created a single photo.
The game gets trickier once you move on from circles and squares and on to triangles and dodecahedrons.
Create a rainbow
We’re seeing more rainbows than ever on our walks so it makes sense to have another rainbow scavenger hunt
This time we used colours bowls and filled them with matching coloured objects.
Once we filled all our bowls we arranged and photographed them as a rainbow.
You could print each individual colour collection and stick them in your window in a rainbow formation.
This photo scavenger hunt follows on nicely from creating a rainbow.
Using a colour wheel we found out the complimentary colours of the bowls and searched for objects of that colour.
For your reference we have created a colour wheel of primary and secondary colours.
Complimentary colours are opposite each other on the colour wheel.
The objective of this task is to find patterns that are either in nature or man made. It’s another scavenger hunt that can be done indoors or when out for a walk.
Easy patterns to find outside are things like brickwork and fencing so once these are exhausted it gets trickier.
Find interesting textures
Looking for interesting textures can be done at the same time as looking for textures.
These images will provide useful stock content for future projects so make sure to collect as many as possible.
It’s interesting to compare textures in nature and man made textures once you have collected them.
