yesterday was david's birthday! i like making him work (play) for his gifts, so this year i made a birthday branch decorated with bits of paper. on each paper was a typewritten clue which he had to decipher to find a hidden piece of candy. if the candy had a fuzzy little dinosaur sticker on the back he received a gift, if there was no dino he just got the chocolate.
last year's game was a birthday ball bounce and the year before was birthday beans (yup, those are the same beans in the birthday branch jar below).
in between searching for chocolates we worked on this jigsaw puzzle.
