I AM NOT READY FOR SUMMER TO BE (MORE THAN) HALF WAY OVER!
We were busy planning a family camping trip and Hilary told us about a fun activity they had at girl's camp (Thank-you, Tara). I HAD TO HAVE ONE!
We found them at REI (an outdoor/sports store?), but not the one near us. I checked on Amazon and the price was the same. (I ordered a DVD for a Christmas gift and got the free shipping.)
Remember the fun snipe hunts you had when you were younger? And the ones you planned when you were older? I bought "Snipes". Gotta say we love them. (I do wish they were furry, but more about that later.)
They are from a company called "Educational Outdoors". The game comes with 2 snipes and their "nest". The snipes are about 4 in. long and 3 inches tall. (Small) They are green and orange-ish. The nest is green. (The nest is actually the base.) All are a hard plastic.
Here is the game. Hide the snipe (or snipes) for the other person/team to find. After a few minutes the critters start to chirp intermittently. After another 5 mins. of snipe hunting the eyes began to flash. It will chirp and flash until returned to it's nest (or the batteries die).
This fun toy/game comes in a "crate" with holes for breathing and live animal warnings (cute).
Each snipe uses 2 AAA batteries (Yea! I hate buying the cell/disc type.).
Ideal for outside in a yard or camping trip, inside or out, light or dark.
Recommended for ages 6+, BUT my 3 year old grandson loves this and wants to play-often.
The instructions are short and easy to understand.
It sells for between $18.00-$25.00.
(I would post my pictures but it is already Thursday night so I will use Amazons :)
I have NOT been paid or compensated. We just love our snipes. (I am happy to answer questions.)
I am a stay at home wife to a "go to work for my family" man. He likes his job. I love my life. We had 6 children in 8 years. We added 1 thru love and 3(so far) thru marriage. We have (so far) 2 dearly loved grandsons and 1 granddaughter. I am 53. I thought that was young until I saw some pictures.
Perhaps the best theme for my blog writings is a thought from President Gordon B. Hinckley. "Women for the most part, see their greatest fulfilment, their greatest happinessin home and family."
THIS IS ME!
