Day 16 of Hands on Play- Go on a Hunt



DAY 16 CHALLENGE:Spend [at least] 15 minutes of uninterrupted* time going on a hunt! Plan one out with drawings, pictures or words. Or shout out an item to look for! Get creative with it!

[*uninterrupted : being present with the child. No technology, phones, television, computer, etc. No errands, chores, making dinner, etc.]

Our hunt was a letter hunt.  We were looking and searching for 4 different letters.  We were out and about in the morning driving and found some letters on signs and that was fun! (No pictures from the car ride) At home we went from room to room searching with a lot of success!  :) 

Our first letter was "S" for SELAH and here are the S items we found.  (Selah took the pictures)


The next letter on our hunt was "T" for TITUS and here are the other "T" things we found:

The next letter was "M" for MOMMY and here are the items we found:

The last letter on our hunt was "D" for DADDY and here are the items we found:

Great idea!! I love reading the interpretations to these challenges! :-)
Thanks! I think when my daughter wakes up from her nap she will be excited just to look at her pictures on the computer. :)
I love this version of a letter hunt! And great that you did it on the car ride too - we always did that but worked out ways through the ABCs (of course I was much older though).
I love your letter hunt! My son loves to find letters everywhere we go. He'll just randomly say a few letters. When we turn to look, sure enough, the letters are there. :)

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
