The Scavenger Hunt List

Oh how I wish I was a kid again. 

…Those Thanksgiving mornings waking up, hoping there might be snow on the ground.

…Watching the Macy’s parade with the anticipation of seeing Santa at the end to kick-off the Christmas season – and then switching the channel to football for the day.

…Waiting for my grandparents and other family to arrive.

…The smells coming out of the kitchen and all of those “heirloom quality” homemade desserts.

It was the best. 


It is my hope that my kids will have their own memories that make them want to be young again.

Some old traditions.   Some new traditions.

Anything works, as long as you can wrap your heart around it. 


I’ve mentioned many times that no matter the occasion, we somehow manage to find a way to sneak in a little competition.  As long as there is a finish line, it is a competition.

That is another tradition that we have passed on to the next generation. 

And this year, it is by way of a Thanksgiving Scavenger hunt for the handful of kiddos that will be here.

Here is their list:

No worries.  No cares.  Just food, family and fun.

Oh, how I wish I was a kid again.

  1. How much fun would this be! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This sounds like SO MUCH FUN! Can I play? ;) How are they gonna find a small box buried in the orchard? Is it like the hidden immunity idol? Are there clues?:) We are going out of town but next year, we are SO doing this! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  3. Fun!!! Here at the ranch we too add fun elements. Our newest is an ice fishing competition on the lake between stuffing our faces with food. We invite friends and other family to join and have dessert in the house after. If the contest for some reason can’t be held (too much snow, lake not frozen) we have a lively game of bingo.


  4. For the past two Christmases, we have hidden our granddaughter’s presents…she has to find them by solving the clues….for you know, that Santa leaves the gifts at Grandma’s & Pop’s house hidden for her to find….it is such a great thing to involve the children is great adventures during the holidays…

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
