A few years ago after continual begging from my kiddos to open a gift early I had an idea. It is now a tradition we are all happy with...A Weekly scavenger hunt. We usually have 2 or 3 before Christmas. I purchase a few small gifts for them with the hunt in mind. I create clues for them to go around the house, finding the next clue, ending at their special pre-xmas gift. They LOVE it! Super fun! The best thing, they don't bug me to open gifts early~ Last night was their 1st hunt. It has been pretty crazy lately so we have been winging it this year. It is usually say Friday nights,but this year, it's when I say, lol! It is really fun to see them trying to figure out what the heck my clues mean! They are so excited and running all over the house! Such a FUN tradition! Here is a pic of the clues as well as Drew's prize. Haliee got one too in Clarice form! They took them to school today to write with them. :0) Next Hunt is the 21st or 22nd, then the last hunt is Christmas Eve. I'll take pics of them in the act next hunt! Merry Almost Christmas!
