The Corner at Home Activities: Exploring Photography

23 July 2020 | State Library of Queensland

Photography Exploration Activity

Hello and welcome to The Corner at Home Activities. Today’s activity is inspired by an exhibition we have here at the library called Twenty: Two decades of Queensland photography. It explores twenty years of stories about people and places all over Queensland. You can view this exhibition online now at

Kids - big and little, process complex information when we are engaged in play and having fun, so let’s put on our best imaginative, playful hats together. 

Let’s get started! Today, join Alarna and explore photography with your little ones by learning to capture a still picture or moment in time together.

We will encourage children to document their discoveries by interacting in a fun and friendly open-ended play activity to create the opportunity for conversation and sharing stories with your little one.

What Equipment and materials are needed?  

Use materials and objects found in your home environment:

  • Paper or card
  • scissors
  • glue
  • pen
  • collection of old magazines, newspapers or junk mail
  • exercise book or journal.
