We ended our Valentine's Day countdown with one of my favorite activities:
A Treasure Hunt!
And since LM cannot read clues, I had the idea to use pictures instead. So I grabbed the camera and took pictures of objects in our home, copied and pasted them into a word document, had them printed out and glued them on cards to use as the clues.
I wasn't sure if LM would understand the concept of seeing the picture and going to it, but after the first couple clues, he was well on his way! He had so much fun running from place to place looking for the next clue. We made about 20 clues or so.
LM found all the clues which eventually led him to his Valentine's Day surprise: candy & a little book.
And with all these cards made, we will surely be having more treasure hunts in the future! They can be long or short hunts, hunts in one room of the house or all over, or hunts using only one color of cards (ie. pink, yellow, green or orange). Making these cards was quite easy, and definitely worth the fun!
