Lynn Kirk Elementary School hosted a mother-son Scavenger hunt May 10 on school grounds. This was the first time that the scavenger hunt has been offered.
To prepare for the hunt, students and parents dressed in pirate gear, including face paint, press-on tattoos, bandanas and more.
Students were divided into teams and each team was given a list of clues to follow to find the pirate treasure, consisting of necklaces, pirate pencils, balls and other pirate-themed toys.
Before the next team searched for the clues, PTA mothers would travel the school grounds to reset the prizes.
“It’s really good to see the boys spending time with their mothers,” said Nicole Myers, a PTA mom. “I hope they expand the event to happen at the new school next year as well.”
In addition to going on the hunt, children and parents received dinner, watched “Pirates of the Caribbean,” listened to pirate music and played pirate-themed games, such as “Tug-of-War” and “Swab the Deck” using balloons.
