Homeschool Instagram Photo-a-Day Challenge : October 2013


Back by popular demand… the Homeschool Instagram Photo-a-Day Challenge is going to continue! This month we’re aiming to capture little memories from October 2013. I’m loving seeing your finished collages on your blogs! If you are interested in making a collage with your photos, you can always check out Big Huge Labs. They link to your Flickr account (and Instagram allows you to save your photos to Flickr instantly as you publish them). That’s how I do it!

Spotlight on a great photo app:

Snapseed is a great way to add texture, edit your images, add a blur to make your image look more like it was taken with a DSLR or just to focus in on a particular item, or make your image pop in HD. Google bought it and has now opened a desktop version! (Click the link to see a tutorial…)

Here’s how to join us for the October 2013 Homeschool Instagram Photo-a-Day Challenge:
* If you want to join the fun and challenge yourself to take a photo a day this October, share this post’s url/link and the image above on your blog, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook Page, and IG account. The more homeschoolers the better!


Take a photo along the lines of the theme each day and share them inside the Instagram App. Use the #HSchallenge hashtag in your subject line so your picture will go in to the group pool so we can all browse them. Easy peasy!

For example: Day 1 (October 1st) was “Done”. I’m getting this up a little late, but you can take a photo of something you completed/finished or something cooked well-done. Be creative. You can write on your images, too (there are a lot of text apps out there – my fave is Phonto).

You can be as symbolic and/or creative as you want!

This is your project for creating memories of your homeschooling.


Below are the suggested days for each photo-a-day challenge. If you get behind, that’s OK. Just do two or three in a day and catch up. Do them in as many days as you want. Always tag them with #HSchallenge (not case sensitive) so they will go in to a group pool for everyone to search and find.

I never got around to showcasing your photos on my blog last month – WHEW!! was September BUSY! So sorry. I’ll try to do better this month. I barely finished last month’s challenge myself. I got a little behind mid-way and had to catch up in the last week of September. That’s ok. Don’t stress! Go at your own pace.

Remember to tag your photos with the day’s challenge word and the #HSchallenge hashtag. You can just type the number sign before the word and it tags your picture so it is easier for us to search and find.

If you have any questions, let me know!

{ Hope to see a lot more of you & your homeschool crew on IG! }

In Him,
