Where IS it?

Here’s a great crafty idea for a raining day!

We had some coconut flakes that were a bit… off.

Threw them into a mason jar and almost topped it off with a bit of white sugar.

Now, you want to find a dozen or so items that stand out or hide well.  🙂

Put them into the jar, shake and swirl so that the mystery items are well dispersed.

Here’s how the game works.  🙂

Two to four monkeys………..   each monkey gets 15-30 seconds (depending on age) to find as many objects as they can (without undoing the lid!).

This is what we used…

  • 3 jellybeans (white/yellow/pink)
  • 1 popcorn kernel
  • 1 vitamin
  • 1 bunny cracker
  • 1 bobby pin
  • 1 match stick
  • 1 birthday candle
  • 1 nickel
  • 1 pasta noodle
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 nail

Seal that mason jar tightly!!!

This is NOT as easy as you might think it is.  🙂


Have fun!
