Since we returned to Ann Arbor, we've gotten back to our Stroller Strides classes with Fit4Mom Ann Arbor. We returned during ABC & 123 month (each month has a theme - for the kiddos mostly) and it got me thinking about one of the items left over on my "surviving summer" list: to work on Ella's ABC photo book.
I began compiling photos of Ella in the spring illustrating activities and things beginning with each letter of the alphabet to create a custom ABC book for her. I still need images for quite a few letters of the alphabet and I thought it might be fun to complete the rest of the photos with her help.
And, viola, the ABC photo hunt was born! The day before I wrote each letter of the alphabet on an index card and posted them on a large wall. I filled in the cards for the letters we already had photos for like, F is for Family . . .
and S is for Sipping through a Straw . . .
I then made sure to fully charge my camera overnight. The next morning Ella and I began our hunt. We went through each letter. Sometimes she could give me a word that began with the letter but more often than not, I had to make a suggestion. We would then go on a hunt to find that item or illustrate that activity and I would capture it in a photo for the book. I'm still working on editing the photos and adding text, but I'll be sure to share the final product when it's complete.
