L likes to copy me in many different ways.  And she is especially fond of trying to copy me using machines/ computer, my phone, my camera, etc.  I thought it would be fun to make her a camera, so she could take "pictures" of her own.  

I used an empty box, stuck an empty paper towel tube through it and covered it with duct tape (classy, I know!).  Then I drew on a few features with a sharpie marker.  I also put a ribbon onto it, so that she can wear it around her neck.  L's camera may not be high-tech or light-up or overly creative or perfect, but it was free, simple and fun to make - and she LOVES it!  She walks around with it, pointing it at various items/things/people, saying "cheese!".  It's way cute!
