Most kids are drawn to cameras at a young age. They want to take pictures "like mommy and daddy," but they need a slightly tougher camera. Real Simple has a few good choices.
We love how Kristin, the author of the post, shows off a couple of pictures from the height of her son. "...their pictures also give me an amazing perspective on their worlds. Photos taken at what is my waist height remind me what the world looks like from "down there" and multiple snaps of the cat, my husband, me and their favorite toys, shows me what's important to them." Well said.
The Fisher Price Kid Tough Camera seems to be a popular choice for ages three and up and at a price of $70. It's great because it's digital so you can be choosy about the pictures you'll keep.
The three other suggestions are the Vtech Kidizoom, Disney Pix Micro Digital Camera, and Crayola Digital Camera. Find all the details at Real Simple.
Since it is outdoor month here at Ohdeedoh, how about handing them a camera and going "exploring" in the city or backyard. It'd be fun to see what they come up with.
