This past weekend was filled playing board games, laughing a whole bunch, and making memories with two of my grandkids. It was so much fun and we all had a great time. It didn’t involve electronics, the television never came into play, yet laughter filled the air. Actually it filled the entire house. Playing board games is still alive!
A couple years ago I introduced my granddaughter, who was five at the time, to the connect the dots game. I created a 10 x 10 grid of dots and the fun began. Once I showed her the object of the game, she was hooked. In fact, we played at least a million connect the dots games in a span of about an hour. Well, maybe not a million but she really enjoyed the fun we had playing together.
A scavenger hunt for kids doesn’t have to be boring. Make it an adventure that they will remember forever. Too many times, a scavenger hunt for kids turns out to be a flop. You don’t have to rush into it on a whim. Give it some thought and make it a game they will always want to play and remember. It’s not that hard if you will simply follow this one guideline.
