Take a Picture... has 200 different scavenger hunt items that are randomly chosen for each hunt, so the child is not always seeing the same items from hunt to hunt.
Each scavenger hunt consists of a friendly voice telling your child what items to take pictures of. The current item is also written on the top left portion of the screen.
Your child can press the Replay button on the lower left to replay the sound.
If your child cannot find the item they can press the skip button to come back to it later.
Once all the items have been found, the hunt will automatically finish and your child will see how many coins they have earned.
If your child cannot find all the items, they should press the stop button on the top right.
Example hunt items
"Something that begins with the letter W."
"Something that makes you grumpy."
"Something that makes you happy."
"Something made of metal."
Players earn one coin for each item. If all items are found, the player receives an extra five coins.
After completing a hunt, the player then lets an adult review the hunt by pressing the Review Hunt button on the main menu.
The adult can then review the photos, pressing the Wrong button for photos of items that don’t match the description.
For each wrong item, two coins are taken away.
The photos your child take are stored within the app itself, and the app can be configured to delete them after one two or three weeks, or never, that way the photos aren't taking too much space on your device.
Tips to give your children:
Hold the camera still when taking a picture for the sharpest pictures, and tap the screen where you want it to focus if it's not in focus
