August 17 - Pokèmon Treasure Hunt

This was a kind of dry run for the kids birthday party activity next month. I tried my best to meticulously document all the prep work the night before on Instagram, so I'm going to try and let those pictures tell the story.

The one thing I want to correct for: The kids IMMEDIATELY starting fighting over who gets what Pokémon. Hopefully at the party there will be SO MANY POKÉMONS that this won't be as much of an issue? We'll see.

SELFGRADE: A. Mostly for remembering to meticulously document everything on Instagram, that was a big step for me. But it worked well, kids solved the puzzles entirely on their own, it was straight-up thrilling.
