A fun scavenger hunt idea
Yesterday the kids and I went to a fun scavenger hunt organized by a mom in our homeschool group. Her really fun idea was to use egg cartons, and paint each well in the carton a different color.
Twelve different colors for the twelve wells in the carton. Once the paint had dried, the kids all set out to find something that color on the beach.
For a few of the colors, my kids ended up picking up bits of trash. A yellow straw bit for the yellow. A bread bag tie for the white. Others stuck with just rocks and were sifted carefully through the piles of rocks on the beach.
It really was lots of fun! I'm going to copy this idea for a scavenger hunt at church, I think.
