last week, "the monster" and "bump" had a friend over. after riding circles around our garage on their bikes for a couple hours, i brought out the sidewalk chalk. we traced our bodies, drew on funny hats and then i told them we were going do a scavenger hunt. i think just the word "hunt" got them excited!
this was a great game for each of their ages because it forced the oldest to practice reading each assignment and the younger boys practiced counting & learning their numbers. we went all the way to twelve and i sent them looking for such things as rocks, sticks, leafs, toys, worms, and trash.
do you have a favorite outdoor game that is also educational?
