This game I thought up (so to speak) for my daughter today was such a hit that I'm sure we will be doing many more like it. It was such a beautiful day that I thought it would be fun to get out and do something. We are very lucky to live right next to our City Park, so I made up a Scavenger Hunt that we could do while walking in the park.
Make up a list of things to find. Check.
Grab a clipboard, attach the list and a pencil, so you can mark off your items as you go. Check.
Find a super cute bag to put your "treasures" in. Check.
I simply told my daughter I had a surprise for her, got her dressed, grabbed the stuff I put together, and we were on our way.
I think it was more exciting that way because it was like an adventure for her. My daughter kept saying how fun it was and had no idea we were actually learning about reading and counting...love that!
Mom rocks! Check.
