Outdoor photo, counting and scavenger hunt challenges to spark exploration! This app (inspired by the PBS Kids show, Plum Landing) gives players a "mission of the day" to complete. Missions include photo challenges (e.g. "take a picture of light coming through leaves") or a counting challenge (e.g. "how many storm drains do you see?") or scavenger hunts (like "find things that are brown!"). The photo and scavenger hunt challenges ask kids to take photos, the counting challenges just have a button that players tap each time they see the thing they're counting to keep track of the number. There are also suggested questions that adults might want to ask the kids as they play. If you're having a hard time transitioning from on-screen time to off-screen time, perhaps this app can bridge the gap. If you enjoy outdoor photo apps for kids, you might also try: Seedling Scavenger Bingo or Elmer's Photo Patchwork.
