A great way to spend time with your kids is to take a photography class together

Take A Photography Class Together:

I don’t know if you enjoy taking pictures or not, but learning even the basics of photography has so many advantages that other hobbies don’t have. Simply think of how valuable pictures are that you will have with your child and family over the years. That alone is invaluable. In addition to that, you can take this hobby and turn it into a very profitable side hustle or even an eventual full-time career. 

People’s lives are changed by taking classes. You may not realize how many photography classes are offered in your area. Still, many photographers would be willing to teach you the basics for a nominal fee, and you could then decide if it is something you want to continue to explore. Taking classes related to life skills and hobbies can create passions you or your child would have never known you had. You can take your photography class in person or online, so select one that works for you and your child.

WMTDS (What Makes This Date Special):

One of the great things about this date is the ability that it has to create scheduled time for you and your child. If you were to both love the hobby of photography, which so many people do, you have created more opportunities for you and your child to spend time together. You don’t have to have formal “dates” to spend time together, but merely any given opportunity for you to share time. This date also provides you with a new or improved life skill, and learning is always great!

Lastly, this date can turn in to something more long term like an ongoing hobby or even a business. Either of those will bring a special bond between you.

Teachable Moments:

Learning photography together.

Importance of continued education & development of life skills.

Potential for business opportunities.


If photography isn’t your thing, there are an abundance of other types of classes you can take. Below are some excellent links to take you to resources related to each hobby.

Take a minute to find a hobby that you and your child are already interested in and see if you can find a class you would both enjoy. Another resource for courses in your local community college or university, which often offers courses on a wide range of subjects.


Some classes can cost a few hundred dollars, while others are free. Also, keep in mind that you may need materials or equipment, such as cameras and lenses for photography classes.
