Ribbon Scavenger Hunt for Books

Here's how we made reading time a little more exciting today:

1.  Sent the girls outside to romp with the chickens.

2.  Tied together a handful of remnant ribbons into one long chain.
2.  Tied one end to a doorknob
3.  Tied the other to a fun book and hid the book.
4.  Threaded the rest of the ribbon around furniture, under shelves, up the stairs, etc.

5.  Brought the girls back in and told them to follow the ribbon until they found the book.   

6.  Settled down to read the book.

7.  Repeated twice!

Cute idea. We would have to change the #1 though as we have no chickens. : )

I have been reading your blog for a while and I love all your ideas. How do you find the time to keep up your house, blog, do all of these dun things with your girls and sleep?

Thanks, Laura;  I'm afraid I manage by NOT being a perfectionist. :-)  I don't know if you saw this post a while back about things I don't do
