We finally did our Jingle Bell dance last night. Yes, we OFTEN get behind in our activities. And that's fine. We catch up when we can. We also haven't mailed our letters or done our paper chains. I have to buy some construction paper. OOPS! So see, if you are behind but are thinking how fun, join us. You won't be any more behind than we are!
Now technically, it's not a scavenger hunt, it's a treasure hunt. But we use the terms interchangeably around here. This is the one where you get a clue, that leads to a clue, that leads to more clues, that leads to a pot of gold. Or in this instance, a pot of toys from Walmart. I found a lot of cute, little Christmasy things, in the Christmas section at Walmart, for $1.00, so I bought about three per child.
This is our first year to do this particular activity for Advent. It should be fun though because we do scavenger hunts ALL THE TIME!
Our green and red dinner turned out okay. I'm not as creative as some of you. (Be sure to read yesterdays comments if you need some better suggestions.)
We went with:
Hot dogs with ketchup (hey, the hot dogs were almost red...we use the Hebrew National)
Kettle BBQ chips (which are red but are natural)
Then later I remembered I had apples and pickles and we could have had Sprite. Oh well. I'm pregnant. That's my excuse.
If you decide to do the hunt today, be sure and leave us some clues so the rest of us don't have to think so hard. Thanks, pal.
