Have you played along on a daily Instagram challenge yet? If not, you are missing a lot of fun. I’ve been creating a monthly challenge since the beginning of this school year and sharing it on IG for anyone to participate in. You don’t even have to be a homeschool family to join in… but I will say, there are quite a few prompts that homeschoolers will love: #books, #pen, #study… etc! In the early part of the school year we even had a school-room shot and quite a few homeschool families shared images on their IG streams of where they did school.
Each month is different. Each day is different. The cool thing about the #HSChallenge is that there really are no rules. The challenge has a “theme” for each day, but you can do them out of order or skip them if you want. You can clump them together and do a few on the weekends and take the week off. You can even go back through your stream after a few days and add the hashtags to photos you already posted to IG as an afterthought. Sometimes it is easier to see how your photos fit in to the daily challenge themes AFTER THE FACT.
I mention a little bit about how I do the IG challenge on my blog if you want to get some ideas. Above, I’ve shared a few photos from February’s challenge that I really liked to give you some encouragement. Most all of my photos are iPhone only.
You can look and see what other people are taking photos of by following along on IG at the #HSChallenge hashtag. I love to see what everyone captures each month.
Anyone can do it. Any age. All you need is a smart phone (camera phone), the Instagram app, and some creativity. It would be a really fun project for your homeschool kids if they are interested in photography, too! Just sayin’.
I’m crazy addicted to IG challenges, just so you know. I’ve already got a spreadsheet of ideas for the next few months. If you have any fun ideas you would like me to add to the daily challenges, let me know!
OH – and SPREAD THE WORD! It’s more fun with a lot of participants!
See you on IG!
