RAK Mission Scavenger Hunt

Pin It

The girls were stuck in the house on Saturday.  Mommy was under the weather and Daddy is gone out for a while.  They had stayed busy the majority of the day crafting, cleaning, reading and then . . . they were DONE!

I mean, D-O-N-E, done!  And the complaining and whining ensued . . .

My girls needed a reminder that we are blessed (I don't do complaining, especially about boredom) and I needed a quick solution for fighting cabin fever.

We love Focus on the Family and their magazine, Thriving Family, which has saved this mom on more than one occasion.  Thank you Dr. Dobson and crew!  We flipped through the magazine and came up with our own spin on a "Cabin Fever" solution that they suggested.

Presenting the R.A.K. (Random Acts of Kindness) Scavenger Hunt.  Here's how it works.  You make a list of items that help your family recall how truly blessed they are, yourself included.  I made a list that could be done that day, without leaving the house.  The list I made for the girls went something like this:

  • Find 4 mismatched socks with holes in the bottom and throw them away.
  • Locate 3 outfits that are nice, but you don't wear anymore.  Place them clean and nicely folded in a big bag to take to a local charity.
  • Take 3 canned goods our of the pantry and put them at top of bag for local food pantry.
  • Clean your sister's side of the room for her.
  • Write a letter to a relative that lives far way.
  • Make your sister laugh, no matter what it takes.
  • Make a card or letter to encourage an elder or someone from a nursing home.
The girls had a blast.  Boredom was busted.  They did some good and Mommy got more healing rest!

HERE is a FREE Download for you!  This is a R.A.K. (Random Act of Kindness) Mission Scavenger Hunt.  You can use this Scavenger Hunt with your family and take up to a week to complete.  Download this challenge and then pass on the kindness to another family to challenge them too!

Come back and let us know how it went.
