A Fun Start to Spring Break


         I like to celebrate the start of Spring Break - oh, who am I kidding, I like to celebrate everything.  So, in honor of a week off from school and the beautiful sunny weather, we hosted a "St. Patrick's Day Photo Scavenger Hunt" at the local park.  Inspired by our sweet friends, The Linebargers (Christie can be found at Pop Rocks for Breakfast), who have thrown very fun adult photo scavenger hunts, we thought it would be a fun kid activity.  And it was!

          The kids really got into it - we had fun looking for every color of the rainbow, searching for a leprechaun, and finding "gold".  These kids were creative!

       The kids got a list of fun things to find in the park - and had enough time to find them all.  Normally, as adults we assign a point value to the different things we had to find, but for the kids, I just told them to be creative and they were!! There were no winners, but everyone walked home with a goody bag of "Lucky Charms"!

"make your initial with your body"

              Even the baby enjoyed being outside and watching the kids run around.  It was a great way to start our Spring Break off!!

What a great idea. I bet the photos the kids took were a scream. It is neat to see things through their eyes. Hope you have a great spring break!
