Summer Snapshots Week 9 {linky party!!!}


I am excited about Summer Snapshots this week, especially because I have a fun little project to share.

For Valentine's Day last year, I created a little scavenger hunt for Reid and he had an absolute blast.  I could have never guessed how much he would love it.  The whole time he kept saying, "Oh thank you Mom.  Thank you."

Naturally I decided to add it to our Summer List and Reid has been anxiously waiting to check this one off.  I have collected treasures for him over the last few weeks and finally had some time to get it all together. 

In case you want to do this little project with your kids, here is what I did:



Step 1: Use paper punches to punch out 2 different shapes.  You will need 1 punch of each size for each goody bag

Steps 2, 3: Stamp the larger labels with numbers to attach to each of the goody bags.

Step 4: Print clues onto labels

Step 5: Attach clue labels to smaller shapes.

Step 6: Wrap up the goodies in treat bags and place a clue in each bag.  Attach the numbers to the outside of the package.  Hide the packages in order and have fun with the scavenger hunt!!

If you don't have the time to shop for goodies, another fun option would be to put a dollar in each goody bag and then offer to take your kids to Target or their favorite store to spend the loot on a little treat for themselves.

Here are a few snaps of Reid that I took during the hunt:



Sometimes Reid doesn't always get my undivided attention because he is not the only child in this house, so it was really nice to do something special just for him. 

Want to link up and show us what you've been up to this week?
