Tip 10: Shoot Multiples
Shoot multiples with changes in expression. These never disappoint me. With little ones, I might ask them to show me what they look like when they're happy, when they're sad, when they're scared, when they're surprised, etc. They love this game and I think the resulting images look great framed as a series.
