Mother’s Day Scavenger Hunt

Mother’s Day Scavenger hunt – a day to remember! I hope you can use this fun hunt for many other special days – Father’s Day is coming soon!

Now, I don’t know how I will top this years Mother’s Day. James out did himself – and with my idea that I normally do for the kids. I hope you read this all the way through and do this for your significant other or kids, because it is that good and will bring memories to last a lifetime!


Ok, before we begin I have to tell you that this first clue James was a bit disappointed in my reaction. I am sure you can’t tell from my videos – but he is quite hilarious and always “tries” to be funny. Normally I am cracking up… but this time I was more confused.

Clue #1

To help you find the first gift, think of “your” dad’s favorite thing about you. You would use this outside to relax on something white and soft.

{Well , James meant him and I was so confused when it said my dad haha – even though I would have guessed right away what his favorite thing is if it said it right haha }


Clue #2

Ice cream yiou scream we all scream for ice cream. Your gift is not ice cream, but you might find this gift where the ice cream may be.


Clue #3

Whether you go swimming or take a shower, you will need one of these. Think of what this is and you will find the next gift.

{ Towel Closet }

Clue #4

Batters up, if you like baseball you will need one of these to play the game. Find this and you will get your next clue.

{ In the kids baseball bat / sports holder }

Clue #5

Clue #7
