Active and Outdoor Birthday Parties – Biking Scavenger Hunt by Tales of a Mountain Mama
I am not one of those moms that believes in big hurrah birthday parties every year. I love my children to the moon and back, but also know that I would quickly not be able to uphold a high precedence of fancy birthday parties. We’re all about easy, cheap, and lots of fun. Easier said than done, especially when you’re planning a birthday party in the “shoulder season” when sledding is out and the weather is very unpredictable.
This year for our oldest’s 5th birthday, we also decided that making sure the kids were outside at least some of the time (though preferably most of the time) and were active (in a directed and organized way) was crucial to keeping 20 kids (friends + siblings) under some sort of control. Since we have a great love of biking in our family, we chose to go the biking route. A scavenger hunt was planned to keep the motivation up and the fun included.
