We’ve got to that point in the summer holidays now, where the kids really could do with going back to school! They are bored: they’ve played on their bikes, they’ve rediscovered all their toys, they’ve made new friends, fallen out, and made up. They’ve fallen in the beck, and built a den, and taken picnics to the park. They’ve had water fights and movie nights, barbeques, adventures. We’ve been on holiday, they’ve swam, rock climbed, visited museums, baked cakes, made scrapbooks.
At this point in the holidays they often receive an invitation to take part in a scavenger hunt. A letter arrives, with a list of things they have to find- some things need to be collected and put in a shoebox, others you have to photograph.
So they are now planning where all these items can be found. A waterfall- Lancaster’s Williamsons Park! A shop named after a person…Booths supermarket! Off they go with their little camera…
The prize is tickets to the cinema. You know, I think they’ll win 🙂
