How to get kids to play outside: Try a camera

study of 3rd Place, Brooklyn
If you want to get kids off the couch and into the Great Outdoors, try giving them a camera to play with. Kids love cameras! Buy a cheap one and don’t worry too much about the quality. For most kids, taking pictures is all about snapping the photos and not so much about how they look.

You might even suggest a photo essay. (And for extra credit, why not hold a contest and offer a prize?)
