ALL TRICKS NO TREATS- THE HUNT

Now-a-days you can never be too safe when it comes to your children.

If you don't live in a neighborhood where you know and can trust your neighbors, you might be leery regarding "Trick or Treating."

Directions

For 2-4 year olds

For this activity you simply hide ALL TREATS around the house and put up sticky notes with hints of where the treats might be. Give them their buckets and let them hunt.

(My children are very young they will need the sticky notes for guidance).

For 4 year olds and up

For this age group you may want to hide "Tricks & Treats" around the house.

Tricks, for example, would be opened candy, opened juice boxes etc...

Have them find everything and have them put compromised, suspicious, and unwanted things in a garbage bag. This will help them to learn the difference between tricks and treats.

MUMMY GO SEEK!

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER LET YOUR KIDS WASTE THE TOILET PAPER! LOL

In stead of Hide and Go Seek.....

Take the toilet paper and wrap up the person that's "IT"

Then go hide and let the mummy find you!

Adds fun, suspense, and thrill to your safe evening at home.

***Safety First- DO NOT WRAP CHILDS LEGS TOGETHER...
