Monster Hunters

While I was gone on my trip to Boston, and Colin was left to fend for himself with four little squirrely kids, he decided to distract them with creative play. Necessity is the mother of invention, they say, and the need to placate active little bodies led to the creation of a new game: Monster Hunters. Little hunters seek out the terrible, ferocious Daddy Monster, wherever he may be hiding. Here are the rules, in case you want to play:

1. Seekers find a safe “base” and count to 10 while the “monster” hides in a distant location.

2. Brave seekers venture out slowly to hunt the monster, sometimes in packs, sometimes solo.

3. Once the monster is located he barges out of hiding and chases down the little seekers as they squeal in delight terror.

4. Repeat the process about 20 times over.

  1. This is fantastic!!! (Hopefully your kids don’t become scared of the dark because of their monster experiences… not that it has ever happened to us).
