Ever been on a Snipe Hunt? If you don’t know what it is I can’t tell you. Someone will have to take you on one. :)
But this is a snipe hunt of a new kind. My mom’s creative genius came up with this and I was so impressed I just had to share. She used it at her Girl’s Camp (church camp for teenage girls) and then did it again with her grand kids when we went camping for a family reunion a few weeks ago.
Remember this Snipe?
He’s cute isn’t he?
My mom printed out a bunch of copies of this picture (he’s Kevin, the “snipe” from the movie Up if you aren’t familiar with him). Then she hung them from trees all over the forest and let the kids go search for snipes. She had a sign on the first one that she claimed to have found. The sign said. “Hi-I’m Kevin. I’ve lost my friends, can you help me find them?”
What do you need in order to find snipes?
Chocolate candy bars of course!
Huge hit with my kiddos and she said it was a huge hit with her girls at girl’s camp. Cute, easy and fun. That’s the best combo right? My mom’s so smart.
