Have you heard about the #2000 Words to Grow campaign? Research shows that the number of quality, positive words a child hears in an hour can dramatically impact their future success. As a Mommy of one almost nine-year old girl, that leaves me contemplating how we can get more words in our life. Footnote: We already talk a lot, but it seems there is always room for more words!
We’ve always done a traditional Easter egg hunt. Hide chocolate around the house, wake up and search. Fun! But for the first Easter, we have a puppy and a problem. Random hiding of chocolate around the house is not an option. I want secure chocolate and more words. Enter This Is Literacy’s #2000Words campaign and voila - a #2000Words Easter scavenger hunt is born.
6 Easy Steps to Your #2000EasterWords Scavenger Hunt:
1.Google search Easter egg free scavenger hunt.
2.Download the best of what you can find, print and snip. Here is the one I used with free clues.
4.Hide eggs. (Where the puppy can’t get at them.) 5.Wait for Easter morning.
6.Wake up, read together, talk together and search together.
