It’s been busy here for the last few days, with our insane weather and with FutureCity, Toy Fair, and National Center for Families Learning Summit all in the last week.
But somewhere in between all of this excitement, my husband and I surprised our kids with a super-fun, totally awesome Disney Surprise Scavenger Hunt!
That’s right–we’re heading to Disney this spring. And we’re thrilled.
We wanted to tell Maddy, Owen, and Cora in a way that made them work a bit, so we came up with a Scavenger Hunt. Nothing too crazy, but we wanted a hunt got them reading, thinking, and putting their heads (and feet!) together to figure out clues and learn about their trip.
Here’s the skinny. . .
- Disney Surprise Scavenger Hunt:
You can use this scavenger hunt whether you’re going to Disney World or Disneyland; it doesn’t matter.
Our goal was to give them an idea that they were going without outright telling them.
Check out our video for a closer look at how it went:
SO funny, right?
They seemed to have a blast!
Our Disney Scavenger Hunt can be downloaded here if you want to use it (and modify it) yourself: disney surprise scavenger hunt
Or here it is as a pdf if you like it just the way it is: disney surprise scavenger hunt (pdf)
Our Disney Scavenger Hunt includes things like:
- counting pennies for the number of days until our trip;
- doing jumping jacks and headstands;
- putting together Mickey sock puzzles;
- unscrambling Disney-related words: vacation, spring, suitcase, sunshine, and more;
- watching a Disney video on YouTube.
We’re really excited.
