|Mabel’s Labels for your camera!|
- Label your camera. Kids misplace things and even if you haven’t spent a lot of money on your child’s camera, you probably want it to come back to you if it is lost. We like Mabel’s Labels on all of our belongings because they are bright, colorful, highly durable, and easy to spot at a distance. The Colorful Skinny Minis are the most used and if you need a discount, just ask via the comments! As a Mabel’s Labels BuzzMama, I have a couple 20% off codes left!
- Invest in rechargeable batteries and talk about conservation. Turning the camera on and off wastes batteries. There’s nothing worse than a dead camera battery when you need it most and your child will quickly learn the same lesson.
- Discuss appropriate times to use the camera. When our kids first got their new-to-them cameras, they wanted to use them all the time. Talk about when it is and isn’t appropriate to take photos and respecting those who don’t’ want their picture taken.
- Provide some beginning photography tips. You don’t have to have professional level skills to teach your child a few things. DigitalPhotographySchool.com has a wonderful quick read of a resource called 13 Lessons to Teach Your Child about Digital Photography. While all of the lessons may not apply now, it’s great to have a starting point for this life-long skill.
