My sister and I were talking last night and she asked me when I thought I would tell the kids about our trip. I told her I wasn’t going to spring it on them until we got to the airport. She suggested I tell them a little earlier, like Christmas Eve or Christmas morning (our flight is for 4:30 p.m. Christmas Day), her point being part of the “experience” of going on a trip is the anticipation. As I think about this more it may be better to tell them as it will give my kids a little more time to mentally prepare and say good-bye to DH who will not be joining us this trip.
The only “creative” thing I could come up with was getting a blank puzzle, write a message on it about going to WDW and wrapping half of the pieces in a box for each child. Then they have to work together to find out where we are going.
Or maybe a treasure hunt through the house?
What do you guys think??
