Photography is one of the best activities for kids. It develops creativity when they must compose what will be included in the frame.
Taking photos helps kids overcome anxiety, daily overwhelm and depression. It helps kids focus and calm the mind from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Let your kids use a camera to focus on the present. This will help de-stress, de-clutter and calm their mind. And you will see the positive benefits of photography on their health and happiness.
Below you’ll find a photo scavenger hunt for kids to fit all ages, with indoor and outdoor themes.

WHERE SHOULD I BUY CAMERA EQUIPMENT?
We get asked this question often. There are two places where we buy our cameras, lenses and other accessories: Amazon and B&H Photo.
B&H Photo is our go-to company for buying the high quality cameras, tripods and lenses. They are a reputable company that’s been in business for over 45 years. Their customer service and knowledge about photography equipment gives us peace of mind when spending money on higher ticket items.
Amazon is where we buy most of our camera accessories like filters, memory cards, etc. The free two-day shipping is always a plus. We have bought cameras, lenses and tripods from Amazon with no problem as well. They are good about returns, but won’t be able to answer gear-specific questions.
