Scavenger Hunts

So I've been trying to do the scavenger hunt over at Wizard 101 Central. I can't believe someone hasn't won that thing yet. People are on their 3rd or 4th submission because the angles have to be just right. This is apparently extremely difficult for more than just me.

I've given up for the moment. I have 8 more I'd need to track down (numbers 1, 13-18, and 20). I guess I'm far far less observant than I thought I was. sigh.

The whole thing got my kids pretty excited though, so I came up with a scavenger hunt for them!

They hid in their bedrooms while I wandered around the house looking at the random stuff I could find . . . there were no angles, no heartache over perfection; just the fun of the hunt.

I'm happy to say they found all that junk and the house was picked up at the same time! I even got two squirts of lotion for my hands out of the whole deal. I highly recommed you use this strategy to get your kids to help you pick up around the house. hehe.

Their reward? The fun of the game!

Happy Dueling!

p.s. You're welcome to join in my scavenger hunt! You have the unique challenge of reading my handwriting though. Good luck with that. ;-)

Yeah, I took one look at the Wiz101 scavenger hunt and decided against playing. Too much like work!

It started out as fun, until I started counting pixels on the edge of a line in a screenshot; after that, well, it became a little ridiculous for a poster and some crowns . . . not to mention I don't even know where half the stuff is.

Whoever wins it . . . seriously, low five to you for your exacting eyes of fortitude. I'm not worthy.

HA! I could get one... Maybe... But no point trying, I can't get them all. Subscription today, maybe!
