Let's do this!

Favorite and conveniently book Kid Experts for sessions throughout the site.

We take photos every day with our phones, but there is a special magic in watching a film photo develop before our very eyes!
This activity will show children how to use an instant camera, choose objects or a theme they want to take photos of, and make a final project. The photos will be used to tell a story on cardboard paper, or make a fun collage. They will combine all their images to produce a final photo masterpiece, enhancing their creative visual skills, learning about types of light, hand-eye coordination, and patience.


Age Group:


-Instax Fujifilm Camera (KidExpert owns, children can use free of charge)
