Bored girl

  1. Go and find me five things beginning with B (or five blue things for kids who are not up to that)
  2. Go and hide. I’ll count to 20 and come and find you (or 2000. lol!)
  3. If you find something to do I’ll give you 5 dollars / points on your star chart
  4. Here’s the camera – take 5 pictures from around the house that represent your life
  5. Grab a pencil and a piece of paper and do a portrait of me or a toy. WITHOUT taking your pencil off the page once.

Any to add? They should be things that can be completed within about 5 minutes and which don’t take more than 1-2 steps to explain to a child.
