We have a game we play at the zoo. I made up cards with animals on them that we would see at our zoo. I actually just went to the zoo's website and selected animals from each area and printed them out. I give the cards to the kids one or two at a time and they search for that animal.
It started with a similar grocery store game where I hand out one or two cards with pictures of food items. Bee and Lou then search for that item. I order them before we go so that they are in order that we would find them in the store.
We recently took picture along the trail where I like to jog. I will be making cards for them to look at with items to hunt for while riding in the jogging stroller. I will try anything to buy time so I can get a bit of a jog in. We photographed a park bench, trashcan, dog water fountain, light pole, basketball court, bridge, etc. I hope to report later that this game entertains them long enough for me to get a nice workout in... we shall see.
Also at the zoo today, Bee wore a shirt I made last night. I actually did not make the shirt, just applied the fabric flowers and ribbons over some many stains that were on this shirt. I also applied one of the flowers to the back of these jean- turned jean shorts. I realized pretty quickly that I made the ribbon leaves a bit too big, she looped her fingers in them most of the morning and one even pulled out.
