Through the Eyes of a 6-Year-Old

August 8, 2014

One thing I love to do is strap a leash on Casey and take her and Sophie for a walk. We live in a nice residential neighborhood that’s within walking distance to Sophie’s school and two parks. While Sophie loves the park, she’s not always wild about the idea of walking to it. So I try to find ways to make our walks a bit more exciting, like this color walk we did a while back.

After reading this blog post, I gave Sophie my digital camera and told her we were going on an adventure to the park and it was up to her to capture what she saw. She was SO EXCITED about getting to photograph our journey!

It’s fascinating what catches the eye of a kid. I loved seeing what she captured! What follows are Sophie’s photographs. These are all original pictures; I did not edit or crop any of them.

So if you want to get your kid outside for a fun activity, give them a camera and see what they capture!

    Oh, can’t believe she’s 6. What a fun activity. I’m going to have to borrow it to do w/ the grands when they’re a bit older. Enjoy summer! Going too fast!

    What a neat idea! She definitely has an eye for color and for nature. And they all turned out so well! My favorite photo is the one with the 6-year-old chipped-nail-polish thumb holding a drying leaf. I can imagine what she must be thinking-that the leaf has a beautiful color pattern, that it has great splotches of brown and yellow, that it uniquely different than all the other leaves… Ah, the innocence of children! What a sweet girl.
