Mom And Son On Run

    Hi. My husband and I are surprising our 10 and 8 year olds with a Disney vacation for Christmas. We are wanting to do some type of clue game leading up to when we leave. They would open presents that are clues. Any suggestions?

    Hi Jamie!

         Love this idea!  What about wrapping tiny presents that don't SCREAM the answer directly, but are more subtle...  For example, the first gift could be a pair of sunglasses for each of them, leading to another gift that is more "Disney" specific.  Some things that pop into my head are beach towels (super cheap this time of year!) travel games for the car of flight, containers with loose change for those Penny Pressing machines - all leading up to a free video that you can make for them on Animoto.com.  Just upload some photos of the kids, some pics of Disney World and add in your own text.  It is super simple to do and the end result is an awesome little 30 second video set to music!
     
         After the big surprise is revealed, I think that they are at the perfect age to appreciate a book on Hidden Mickey's.  Whatever you do, try and film the big reveal - it will be PRICELESS!

    Much pixie dust,
