Here they are ready for the hunt. They each had their own camera to take pictures. Josiah's didn't work, but that didn't matter. He was more interested in eating his snacks.
For the most part, Lexy found the following items on her own. When it came to beginning sounds, she had a hard time finding them. She was able to think of things that started with each letter, but unfortunately we didn't have "igloos" and such in our neighborhood. For some of them, I would give her some hints to help. Some of the findings, are not very Springy; but, considering we were in a neighborhood and not a forest, I think she did well!
N - N is for Nest
We had a lot of fun with this scavenger hunt, and I hope to try some more of these soon. When we had found everything, I had Lexy look and listen for signs of spring. She said she saw "flowers on the trees, green grass, flowers, and leaves on the trees." She heard birds. I was hoping that she would also hear the sound of a lawn mower, but unfortunatley, not many people mow their grass before noon on a weekday.
