abc photo hunt

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.

    1. Thanks Jordan! We had a lot of fun going thought the letters, though it took a few sessions because Ella would get tired of me taking photos of her!
