The weather has been gorgeous the last few days. Last week wasn't bad either, so we tried to spend as much time as possible outside. One afternoon, after the girls got up from their respective naps/quiet time, we went on a scavenger hunt. I had found some pre-made picture scavenger hunt pages online, but they were very U.S.-centric. Squirrels, for example, are something we don't see around the city too often. So I drew a bunch of pictures of things I thought we'd find on a piece of paper (full disclosure: actually I traced many of these pictures from drawings I found on the web), gave each kid a copy and a crayon, and off we went.
I did not put a flower on the sheet because I really didn't think we'd find any, but I was wrong!
This was a great activity that occupied us for about 45 minutes. I see more scavenger hunts in the future!
