The weather was cold and wet. The rain had been coming down in buckets for hours...
I told the kids we'd have an indoor-daytime Slumber Party. That'll be fun, right? We all put on pajamas, I plugged in a DVD movie, and made some popcorn.
Lilly and I both enjoyed Emma Roberts in the 2007 Nancy Drew movie....but Warren fell asleep.
|When Uncle Ross is here, I don't have to worry about the entertainment...|
That's when I remembered how much fun they had doing the Easter scavenger hunt!
|Lilly enjoyed READING the clues...|
|And Warren enjoyed finding the treasures...|
In the interest of KEEPING IT SIMPLE...I quickly listed TEN things for them to find. I gave the list to Lilly, who's job was to READ it. Warren's job was to carry the totebag to put things in...and count whenever necessary. Then I set the oven timer for 5 minutes...
- Six Kleenex
- Three Red things.
- Four things with wheels
- A letter from the alphabet
- 15 pennies
- A Swimsuit
- A flip flop
- Something green
- A flower napkin
If they managed to find everything before the timer went off -- their prize was a brownie with ice cream.
But, when they did beat the clock -- they didn't care one bit about the prize. They just wanted to DO IT AGAIN, GRANDMA...DO IT AGAIN...
