Choose your own adventure

I don't know if this constitues a craft, but it was a fun activity for our family. It's also a great way to mark some "chores" off the eternal list while making it seem fun :) (good Mommy trick).

"Choose your own Adventure"


30 activities split into a blue group and a purple group

Had to at least start the activity within 2 hours of picking it

The card will tell the picker what color to choose next.
