What do you think of this plan for DS’s Christmas surprise? I’ll try to keep it a condensed version so you don’t fall asleep half-way through.
I’ve drawn a map of the house, including furniture. On the map, each piece of furniture either has a number from one to six or a letter of the alphabet on it. The numbered ones are where a gift will be hidden. I put this ditty (in Walt Disney font, of course) at the bottom of the map:
You’re going on a treasure hunt, to find some hidden treasure. We hope the final present will bring the whole family pleasure! So follow the numbers in order, from numbers 1 to 6. But it doesn’t end right there . . . We’re up to our “wold”ly tricks. The last you’ll find has another clue, to the final box in the house. It will be a “magical” discovery, that has something to do with a Mouse!
The map will be rolled up and under the tree.
The six gifts are wrapped in paper with Santa flying in an airplane. Gifts one through five are a camera, the Disney Theme Park Monopoly Game, a water toy that DH wanted to get for the resort pool, trading pins, and the custom theme park maps.
The sixth gift is a small wallet with the clue to a box wrapped in Mickey Mouse paper. Inside the box is a Disney World calendar with the trip days marked with Mickey Mouse stickers, Disney dollars, the Hidden Mickeys Book (for DS), The Passporter (for me, of course), The Birnbaum Dining Guide (for DH), and Mickey Mouse candy canes, all in our Mickey Mouse stockings from last Christmas.
Would you change anything or do you have other suggestions?? I’m so stoked for this!! :goofybounce: :happy:
