V loves to play outside, to get dirty, ride her tricycle, swing, play with the dog.
L, not so much. In fact, it's hard to get him outside, and when I do, he still just normally plays Legos or Pokemon outside. (Which is better than nothing, I guess.)
The other day I was trying to persuade him to play in the back yard, and not getting much enthusiasm, when I had an idea.
I've seen all the neat little printable scavenger hunts online , but I decided to go even simpler. I wrote a few things I was sure he could find in the yard on a paper lunch sack, and told him it was an assignment for school.
He was excited to get started, and quickly found most of the items, although the feather took a bit longer.
When he finished, we took a picture of his finds, and he said he'd had fun.
I asked him if he'd like to do the activity again another day, and he said yes. Score one for mommy. :)
