Not sure how activities work. I know you can tap a button to log a create, but is there somewhere to log what you did or upload a pic.

Re: Activities

We don't have a method for participants to upload pictures to the site (except for the profile pic), If you don't want to just choose from the activity boxes on the right of the screen, you can put a description of your activity in the title box (e.g. Went to the Zoo, Knitted a Scarf, Walked in a Park). You can always share pics on our Facebook page!

Thanks for your question and enjoy your summer of reading and doing.
