The picture-perfect progress camera activity for kids will create a photo journal of your child's life. Most of us wonder what our children will look like as they grow up, grow older, or even grow old. This camera activity for kids records everything.

Find old photographs of your kids or make copies of those photos. Which ones should you use? How about the pictures taken at the hospital on the day they were born? How about a photo showing their smiles after they lost their first teeth? How about one that shows how their dark hair was once much lighter? Select photos that show how they've changed and stayed the same.

What You'll Need:

  • Old photos
  • Copy machine (optional)
  • White glue
  • Blank paper
  • Pen

How to Show Your Picture-Perfect Progress:

Step 1: Arrange the photographs that you've chosen on a blank page of paper.

Step 2: Write a caption under each shot.

Step 3: Now study those photos. Close your eyes, and look to the future. You might get a better idea of just what's to come.

Step 4: Now have your child draw a picture of what they think they'll look like in the coming years. Keep this portrait someplace safe so you can look at it later to check its accuracy.

Were there any fuzzy photographs in the photo journal? "Fuzzy" isn't always bad. Learn more about this special photographic effect on the next page.
