My young son loves the TV show “Blues Clues”, thanks to the wonder of streaming Netflix. The game they play there is simple: one person places three clues around the house and the other person has to guess the meaning.
I play a modified version with my son before we go out to do a fun activity. I hide clues on three objects around the house and have him seek them out, and let him figure it out. You can cut out shapes from construction paper or find some other way to mark your clues.
One clue on the car keys
One clue on the freezer
One clue on my wallet
Put them all together, and it spells a trip to the ice cream store.
What other clues could you put together with your kids?
