Picnic in the Park





Why are these kids running, you ask?





Yesterday was my son's grade 3 class picnic. Since kindergarten, the families have been gathering every year in June for a potluck picnic at a nearby park.


We had a fine day. Sunscreen was slathered and we ate, played soccer, flew kites and had a scavenger hunt which is why these kids are running.




The hunt was fairly easy to set up. Earlier in the day, I went around the park and used the macro lens on my camera to shoot close-ups of some ordinary things you find in the park, printed them out and then hid the photos at the various sites. I gave the children the first photograph clue which they had to identify and locate to find the next photograph clue, and so on. The kids ranged in ages from 3 up to 11, and everyone was running and figuring out the clues. They were only stumped by this clue, and a parent had to give them a little hint.


Do you know what it is?

Washroom legs. I'd recognize that sign anywhere as I've had to search for them sometimes when "somebody" had to "go" really badly.

The legs from a Lady's bathroom sign.
