Having a little camera of their very own can really encourage kids’ creativity. They’ll have a blast learning how to pose things for pictures or what makes for interesting candid pictures. They’ll find all sorts of fun ways to take shots of their toys, the cat, the dog, you.
Having a camera can be educational for them too. They’ll notice things through the lens of their camera that they never noticed before. They’ll find all sorts of plants and bugs and animals that are new to them. They’ll take pictures of these new things and then want to know more about exactly what they are.
And all of the pictures they take will be something of their childhood that they can take into adulthood. There’ll be pictures of pets, their friends, you and themselves that they’ll look at fondly at some point in the future. Having a camera lets a child chronicle their own childhood.
