If your child is anything like mine, then they are probably completely enamored with your digital camera. Taking photos is such fun stuff, why not make it more entertaining for them and give them special "assignments?"
The great photo Web site, Photojojo, recently featured a post with three fun projects any young burgeoning photographer would enjoy. Among the projects in the post are creating your own time capsule, shrinking and photographing others and taking photos from a bug's perspective.
