Yesterday I got this little note from my daughter:
“Alien Adventure – Find paper aliens. Each one who finds the most, wins! All prizes the same.”
This morning, after we got up and moving, we were directed to go look for her paper aliens around the house. She’d drawn 15 pictures of little aliens, stuffed them in envelopes, and hid them all over the house. One alien was found early, last night, because she hid it in her brother’s bed! She hid the aliens well too, they weren’t easy for us to find.
Brad found the most, Brian next, and I came in last with only three aliens. Our prizes were our aliens. Each picture had similar looking aliens, but they each had a speech bubble with different sayings.
Honor is very creative, and this was a fun little game that kept her occupied for some time… drawing the aliens and hiding them… and gave us all a good half hour or so of family play while searching for them! Honor had a blast giving us clues and laughing when we were so close, but still not seeing them!
