Yesterday’s 30 Days to Play Challenge was to go on a hunt.
It was the perfect day to go on that scavenger hunt that I had been planning ever since I created our Fall Bucket List.
I had been putting it off for no go reason whatsoever and yesterday’s challenge was the kick in the pants I needed to head outside and send the girls on a hunt.
I didn’t want this to be something that took a big effort, after all, it was supposed to be fun!
So, we stayed in the backyard. Before going out, I took a piece of notebook paper and wrote down specific attributes I wanted the girls to hunt for.
Then we bundled up and went outside. (Yes, I did make it pretty first… that’s just how I roll.)
Lizzie took off and started hunting. AJ opted to play on our slide instead. I was the recorder and photographer. We had a lot of fun hunting and taking pictures of all our findings.
Here’s what we found!
Something hard: the wood on our play structure
Something soft: our gloves
Something green: some of the grass
Something brown: our dog Charlie’s fur
Something tiny: the rocks in the sand
Something big: the climbing rope
Something alive: the people
Something prickly: the raspberry stems
Something smooth: our skin
We had a lot of fun with this and it’s definitely something I would like to do more often. It was the perfect excuse to get outside and play on a blustery, cold day.
