One of our families most HONORED traditions is the….Annual (x 4 kids) Birthday Present Treasure Hunt!
It takes place immediately upon waking up on the morning of your birthday, and seeing a little note like this taped to your bedroom door.
Followed by more similar signs…..like these….
Until we FINALLY arrive at the prize/present! My parents did this for as long as I can remember for myself and my brothers and sisters…and I have ALWAYS done it for all my kids from the time they were old enough to toddle around the house looking for clues (with the help of a guide.)
It has resulted in some treasured memories and is something the kids could always count on. Sometimes the presents were smaller (or bigger) depending on the circumstances that year….but there would ALWAYS be a treasure hunt! :-)
Happy Birthday to No. 3 son!
Officially a TEENAGER today!!
Watch out world!
