Going Hunting

I'm back. It feels like I've been gone forever. It was a much needed vacation and fun to see family for a few weeks.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The other day my daughter informed me she wanted to go hunting. I immediately assumed that she wanted to pretend to hunt for animals with guns. I quickly learned though that she wanted to go hunting for Easter eggs. OK. That seems more like it.

Since the Easter eggs are all put away at this time of year I pulled an old game out of the bag. When my daughter was around 18 months during the long and cold winter I used to hide blocks around the house and then we would search the house for them. It's been so long since we've done this she didn't even remember. Now that she's older though she can name the letters and the numbers on the blocks as she puts them in the basket. This makes it a little more at her level, but fun nonetheless.

So pull out those blocks and go hunting.


  1. You are so creative! I'll have to do this with my boys!

  2. I'm glad you're back. we missed you in the blogging world.

    Cute idea!

  3. That is a great idea! I plan on using it during those long winter month I have to look forward to. Thanks for your creativity!

  4. I think children love to go hunting for things. In a classroom there are some many knocks & crannies & the hunt can have all sorts of different 'prizes' or trails. Thanks for linking & I hope to see you next week.
