Photo documentary

If you work away from home, travel a lot, or don’t see your kids every day due to access limitations, here’s an activity to try:

Use a digital camera (even the one on your mobile phone) to create a photo documentary of your day. Take photos from the moment you get up, through meals, work, recreation time, etc, right up till you go to bed again. Upload the pictures to a website such as Flickr so that your children can access them and get a real sense of what you are doing all day.

Your children can also do the same and provide you with a glimpse into their daily routine.

Tips:

Learn to recognise children’s emotions

Learn to recognise when your child is feeling sad, anxious or frightened, and be ready to listen.

Activities:

Hide and seek

Who says hide and seek is boring? You can play it however way you want! The key is... be creative!!
