Advent Scavenger Hunt

This is tonight's Advent Gift.  They are 20 oz mugs! That's a WHOLE LOTTA tea, coffee, or hot chocolate! 

Of COURSE, they had to solve the riddle and follow the clue to find their gifts. Nolan and Alex were both home tonight, our first hunt with all four. 

Scavenger Hunt Clue: I once used thermal energy to break molecular bonds. The hunt began!

The girls checked the microwave

They checked the old microwave in the basement

Alex checked the water heater or some such thing

The girls checked the dryer

 Stacia asked if it could be outside of the house. I'm not sure what the boundaries are, but I knew Michael had hidden it in the garage.  I said yes. Alex and Stacia thought it must be the boiler in the garage.  While they climbed behind a shelf to check out the boiler, Allie spotted the broken dryer...could it be? 

She sees them...

When they came back into the house, I gave them the 2nd half of the gift. We had picked these up at a vendor's market on Small Business Saturday. 

They are hot cocoa bombs. They are quite big.  None of the photos quite did them justice. Stacia thinks we could make these...

We weren't 100% sure what they were supposed to do...

Some split open like this and were pretty spectacular. Others just melted from the bottom and the marshmallows started oozing out....It matters which way you put the bomb in the cup - I think you want the seam UP...

They made 1/2 a mug of drink....


We sat around the dinner table and read about Jesus being the Word from our Advent Devo. It was a relaxing and quiet night.
