Here is the link to it. http://www.homeschoolfreestuff.com/i...23/tips23.html

She makes a little mystery folder and each day the kids have a surprise something to do. I love it! I want to do it. Eli and Remy would so be into this!

I did end up doing the mystery folder thing. I haven't given them to the boys yet. Thinking next week will be good for that. I love it so far. It is so fun to put random stuff in that folder. I know they will enjoy it.

They kept asking me what I was doing. It was killing them.

I'm the same way, Alison. Right now, though, everything is a mystery to Eathan.

Well one of the things that I did for Eli was an internet scavenger hunt. That he will do with me watching. It has some addresses and they answer questions from the site. They are all animal sites. But you could do it for anything.
