The longer the pandemic continues, the more creative we have to get. Especially if you have kids, this long stretch of staying-at-home can become challenging.
Here’s a Lake Oswego scavenger hunt to the rescue. We live in a beautiful town with lots to explore, so here is a list for you and your family to tackle. You can approach it in one of two ways:
- Make teams. Set out in separate cars in search of these items and then validate your sighting with a picture you take on your phone.
- Joint project. Pile everyone into one car and head out on your adventure. You can still confirm your sightings for posterity’s sake with a photo.
As for scoring, each item is scored separately. Unless indicated, you can score additional points each time you sight the item in another setting. For example, if you see someone walking a dog on B Avenue and then on Kelok, you can score 1 point two times, as long as you document it so everyone can be sure you saw two separate dog walkers. If on teams, you can add a time element so that strategical decisions need to be made as to which items to track down first.
It’s up to you to make it as competitive or just plain fun as you wish. Enjoy spending time with your family and exploring Lake Oswego!
