Y is for Yellow Photography

Y is for Yellow Photography!  This is the perfect spring activity, though it also works well in any kind of warm weather or with a Letter Y letter-of-the week theme!

This is the sort of activity you can do when you look outside and think that there is no possible way to stay indoors and do school work.  Grab a camera, your kids, and go outside!

Talk about how yellow starts with y, the sounds y makes, and how pretty the yellow flowers are.  But also talk about everything else. We talked about flowers, super heroes, Star Wars, tree houses, decks, and more!  My kids decided that our "Yellow Scavenger Hunt" would only be for natural things, so the truck, fire hydrant, and a few other yellow items "didn't count!" They did decide to allow items that had yellow among other colors.

As you find you yellow treasures, let yourkids take pictures of them!  This gives them technology experience and expensive modern tools at their fingertips!

When they're done, let them use their pictures tomake a collage, either online or by printing, cutting, and pasting their work.  These are their pictures:

Ta da!!  Y is for Yellow Photography!!

My daughter loves playing with the camera - she'd love this kind of "scavenger hunt" activity!
