Fun game to play with digital camera/camera phone

If you don't have little kids this won't seem all that appealing but here is a fun way to pass the time while you are waiting with the family. We do this at restaurants all the time.

I use a digital camera or my phone's camera to take really close-up shots of everyone's eyes at the table. Then I go back through and select one at random and have the kids guess whose eyes they are. Sounds dumb perhaps but the kids get a kick out of it.

Another great camera-based time-killer is using your camera phone to take pictures of something in the room and letting the kids take turns drawing on the picture, making it silly, etc. The Treo phones have this feature built-in.

For example, you might pick a game that they haven't played in a while, a book that might be interesting to read, or an old picture which would give you time to reminisce.
