Scavenger Hunt Lesson

This morning the kids and I had planned to go for a walk, so I decided to make a picture scavenger hunt to keep them interested (and to ward of complaining - not that my kids ever do that). ☺

It was fun to look for all the items on the list and discuss variations of the pictures. With Nate I especially worked on his colors. Our conversation went something like this:

Me: "What color is that sign?"
Nate: "Red!"
Me: "What color is the tree?"
Nate: "Green!"
Me: "What color is that dog?"
Nate: "Salt!"
Me: "What color is Emma's shirt?"
Nate: "Dark!"

I love seeing things through my kids eyes. I can be so "in the box" at times that I appreciate the lessons my children teach me. Today I am thankful for big lessons from little people.
