Scavenger Hunt for the backpack

Sadly, I had to upgrade my son’s backpack from a VERY small backpack to a small backpack. He is starting 3 year old preschool in a few weeks (sob) and will be turning 4 in a few months (double sob). He is going from 2 days a week (last year) to three days a week this year. And yes, it is ONLY from 9-12, but still…..  Seriously folks. I must be going thru some kind of mid life crisis. I am just feeling soooo old and feel like life has just flown past me and I just want it to FREEZE!!!! No more wrinkles, no more growing old! Just freeze time, right here and right now!! But, I know I am living in fantasy land! ENOUGH.. Moving on…..

I decided to put together a scavenger hunt for my son… I had never done one with him before and a few of my friends did some recently so I thought I would jump on the band wagon and get with the program…  The prize at the end of the game? His new backpack he picked out from a list of pictures of backpacks I could “live with”, ha ha!!! Did he have fun going around finding clues…. I somehow managed to make all the clues rhyme and he just got a kick out of it!!! It was such a good idea and a memory that will last me a lifetime….. My hubbie walked around and photographed the whole event. You can click on each picture to enlarge. Enjoy our hunt!!!

    So cute! Your little guy is adorable! Enjoy because it goes so fast. My not so little guy is now 14 and it seems like yesterday that he was in pre-school. Looks like you all had a great time with this!

  2. What a cute idea. Lucas definitely looks like he loved it. I wish you’d done it last week so I could have stolen your idea! Connor just started Kindergarten yesterday and was so excited!
