Intentional Activity:

Look Through Photos Together

Either on your phone or an old photo album, intentionally set aside time to sit down together and look through old pictures!

These days, everyone has hundreds, if not thousands, of pictures on their phone. Take the time to sit down with your child and look back at the memories you made together. Tell stories, laugh, let it spark conversation.

Below are a few ideas to get started:
- Have your child pick a specific Year and Month, then find pictures from that time.
- Pick a specific age your child was and go back to those photos. Tell them stories of things they did when they were that age.
- Talk to family members and try to find the oldest pictures you can of your family and share that with your children.
- Just start scrolling. Start with your most recent photos and see where it takes you.
