DIY Play Camera Necklace

make a play camera

Kids love pretending to take pictures! This activity lets them make their own camera to play with.


You will need: craft foam, pencil, scissors, and glue. It’s also helpful to have straight and round objects to trace, a hole punch, and some string.


Cut a rectangle from the foam of whatever size you would like your camera to be. Trace and cut a round ‘lens’ and glue it onto the rectangle.


If your camera is big enough, you can cut a viewfinder to look through.


Finish by punching holes in the upper corners and threading string through for the camera ‘strap’. Now go clicking!
