Have fun! Find Faces in places***

No words required!

I am privileged to feature the first guest suggestion on this blog today! Michael Balmaceda (thanks!) has these two great sites for kids of any age - and I mean any! To keep things simple in the post title, I am featuring them separately.

The first find is this imaginative blog called Faces in Places. A true collective effort, this showcases photographs of objects or object collections that resemble faces. Go through the archives with your children, and have fun imagining what that face is saying, or trying to see who is it among your acquaintances who has a face like that. Little ones get fascinated just by the positioning of 'eyes' and 'mouth', and whether there is a nose or not. Plus, it fosters imagination offline as well - encourage them to look for faces in all places, and who knows what you will find? Open your eyes to something new today, a new way of looking at things, a new way of finding smileys :)

If you have a photo that fits, upload it to the faces in places flickr group or contact the blog owner via her flickr account - links on the blog.

P.S. I am not quite able to figure out if it is Jody or Amy who is blogging, but it is one of them from the old travel blog of theirs they have linked to.

P.P.S. Please do not copy any of these photographs without contacting the owner of the photo for permission.

Hi Swati,
Just came across your blog after a comment you left on Melissa's blog. Some of the stuff you've mentioned here is very cool - and I'm dying to try it out with my almost three-year old. Keep up the good work!
