Hello, hello! I’m Sky and my simple blog is called Capital B. I’m Mom to two boys and stepmom to two more, so it’s a boys life around here! I grew up watching my own Mom paint and do crafty things and now, craftiness brings me joy too. At Capital B, I share the simple goings on of life with boys, the things I do for real for the sake of our home and friends, and the things that I’ve tried and even failed at. It’s a place that brings me happiness and I hope you’ll come by so it can do the same for you! Ginger is one of my favorite people in the world (I even got to meet her earlier this year- I just love this awesome lady!) and I’m so honored that she chose me to share a kids idea with you today!
My boys seem to require a lot of boredom busters. Let me guess… your kids aren’t too much different? I think it’s safe to say that kids in general just need to stay entertained. We all know how it goes when they get bored… or quiet… ha! Probably my little guys’ very favorite thing when they need something to do is a treasure hunt!
With Halloween about wrapped up, it’s time to start looking ahead to November and Thanksgiving time. It’s easy to let Thanksgiving get under-whelmed between Halloween and Christmas, huh? So I thought I could take the season and turn it into a treasure hunt that would acknowledge thankfulness and kindness in a fun way! I really hope the kit that I made using the fun Falling for Fall digi elements at Summertime Designs will be something your kiddos can enjoy too! My boys loved doing this- certainly more fun than the normal hunts we’ve done!
The treasure hunt kit comes with a printable sheet of cards for taping a quarter to. Then those cards can be taped to gumball or other quarter machines. My boys and I did this during Christmas once before and they really loved it! I honestly got tears walking away from having left the coins at the machines- it’s just fun and neat to do! Again, one of those clues that prolongs the whole thing and doesn’t have to happen right away 🙂
I know that your kiddos will love doing a different kind of treasure hunt and sure hope it helps them feel the reason for the Thanksgiving season- thinking of other always help us be more grateful!

Sky, you are so AWESOME! I so love this idea!
I can’t wait to print it out & do this with my kiddos! 🙂
