Be a photo journalist for the day and capture your life and that of your family, as they go about their normal day. There’s no need to choose a day where anything particularly special is happening, such as an outing or holiday, but if you have the opportunity, try to record those kind of days too. (It would also be fun to document the day of a friend’s or family member’s wedding or birthday from your point of view.)
Make sure you ask permission to borrow a camera if you don’t have one yourself, and PLEASE don’t raid the bathroom while your sister/brother/mum/dad are in the shower, OK!
Ensure you include all the basic details of your life – what you eat, what you’re wearing, who you’re hanging out with, what you’re playing. But don’t feel that you have to take photos of absolutely every minute of the day… after all, if you’re too busy photographing, you’re probably missing out on all the fun!
Part of the fun of this exercise is sharing your photos, so make sure you print them out for everyone to enjoy.
