How to do a Mall Scavenger Hunt in a foreign countryPosted: December 16, 2011
I never thought this day would come but it’s official my oldest child is now a teenager. Happy Birthday Mckaela! She wants to celebrate her birthday the same way all teenage girls do by shopping with her friends at the mall. I told her she can invite as many girls as will fit in the car since transportation is a big deal in a big city like Chengdu.
Here they are standing in front of Mckaela’s favorite restaurant in the mall.
Now their nails are done they are ready for the Scavenger Hunt. I had fun coming up with things to hunt for in the mall. I know teenagers like to take pictures so I knew I needed to give them the opportunity to take a bunch of pictures. They had a list of things to search and find like a red shoe and a wedding dress…
They also had to look for a good looking boy to take a picture with…
They also had to take some glamour shots. Here’s the dresses the girls picked out…
(BTW Trish…Olivia really wants you to buy this dress for her.)
The girls had no problems finding everything on the list. They even found something the same to try on.
Mckaela’s restaurant even made a yummy chocolate cake and these fun girls all sang “Happy Birthday” to her in Chinese, Swedish, and English.
I think this is a birthday Mckaela will always remember.
