The Scavenger Hunt

Summer break has started. Other than the extra laundry (that my boys generate from a bunch of pool towels and several changes of swimsuits & outfits), I really enjoy having them all home with me. However, there have been a few times already that I've heard the words most parents dread to hear. "IIII'm boooored!" Insert whiny voice here.

Since this isn't my first rodeo, I have a few tricks up my sleeve for such moments. Today's was an impromptu scavenger hunt. 

With a clipboard, a list, and the right shoes, they were ready to go. 

What is it about kids and measuring things? My boys love to measure stuff so the measuring tape went too.

It's a good idea to taylor the list to the childs' age and personality if not.... Always, always, always have a Plan B for those with short attention spans. I had him "read" to me while I cleaned up the kitchen. 

Happy Summer, everybody!
