Hieroglyphics Scavenger Hunt

On Thursday I wrote about the $30 gift card I won to the Philbrook Art Museum gift shop.

I read on another blog (and I can't remember which one so that I can give proper credit) about making a hieroglyphics scroll. That gave me a great idea!

I made a hieroglyphics scroll for Dawson and put it on his chair with a hieroglyphics key. He had to decipher the code to find the gift card. The scroll said "Look n the Nile for reward."

I hid the gift card under his Nile Diorama that is out on our patio table.

He was really excited about us winning the gift card! He has his eye on a really cool owl puppet. He wants to name it Dexter and use it to tell stories to the kids in Eli and Brynne's classes at school.


  1. This is an AWESOME idea! I love it! (and Dexter is a great name for an owl.)

  2. I am going to have to try this! What a cool idea. Can't wait to see all of the cool adventures the two of you do this year!



We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
