games kids play on a screen free day…

June 16, 2008

It only took me telling them 4 times that today would be screen free (no tv or computer) before they disappeared for awhile. They returned with this…

A message in a bottle, this was inside…

if you follow the arrows, you will find your prize

A unexpected treasure hunt? yep, these are my children. This is seriously the best thing that can happen to a mother all week. I was told this would help me find my way…

Lucy (who, btw, dressed herself, obviously) made this while the boys laid out the carefully hatched plan…

I was off on my adventure with lots of different paths to choose from.

The first path brought me here, I was excited to find out what was under this…

Unfortunately, all I found was this…

I didn’t give up, I picked another room only to find this…

I was getting a little discouraged until Jorge helped me out…he was on the last path and found the treasure.

An old ticket to Natural Bridge which Josiah is convinced is still good and a compass ring.

This time it was my turn to hide the treasure although Josiah was bummed there was no message.

The treasure, however, was very well received.

Compliments of Aunt Kate who mailed treats from Disney World. All in all, a good screen free day…
