Perhaps you have very young children who show an interest in photography. Consider giving them the joy of photography this summer. You could give them a camera at a family barbecue, gathering, Fourth of July event, family vacation, and more. They can entertain themselves for hours!
An old telephone for the children
If you have an old “beater” phone, it’s a way to introduce them to the world of photography. They are usually intuitive enough even with very small children.
A virtually indestructible camera
Another more robust way is with a Fisher-Price Kid-Tough Waterproof Digital Camera. This might look nicer. And it’s easier to grip because of its rubbery exterior.
There are also two viewfinders, not one, which is more intuitive for small children.
And it’s Fisher Price. It’s indestructible. Trust me – kids have dropped the camera off tables and kicked it down the stairs. I don’t believe it was dipped in water, but who knows?
I gave my Fisher-Price to a young child. This was her first experience with a camera. She ran around taking pictures of everything, exploring the world through a (plastic) lens, laughing, giggling and making everyone happy.
