Photo Hunt
For Your Family

A photo hunt is a fun way to share family photos with your kids.  This fun photo activity is sure to get them involved and excited about learning about your family history.  This is a great rainy day activity or one to do on a road trip.

Gather together a bunch of photos from family vacations, some black and white photos from back in the day, photos of your pets, etc. It's fun to include pictures of family members your kids may not know or remember and some that have funny stories or memories attached to them. And then start hunting! Looking for more photo game ideas? Check out this photo scavenger hunt and this photography game.
