I was excited about this week's prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday, because I figured colors gives you a lot of options. I had ideas. I had plans. Then Dylan got strep. Then I got strep and all my plans flew out the window along with my energy.
On Friday, when I realized I hadn't tackled even one of the prompts, I recruited Dylan. That's how I got my first BLUE shot...
He was not the least bit happy about the prospect of being my model, as you can see. But, then I told him I had a "project" and I needed his help to find things to take pictures of that were red, orange, yellow, green, and blue, and suddenly he was very interested!
First, we found some blueberries he was going to eat for lunch.
He thought his "Captain Bones" math would work well for GREEN. If you never saw "Crashbox" on HBO, the idea is to move only one "bone" to make the equation a correct one. Can you solve both of these? (I'll tell you the answers at the bottom of the post!)
He made this flower pot at school, complete with his school photo. He pulled the flowers out that weren't YELLOW!
An ORANGE slingshot that I like playing with more than he does.
This is what Dylan wanted me to take a photo of for RED, but I liked this candle holder...
(Captain Bones answers: For the first one, you move the top right stick in the nine to the bottom left, to make it a six, so that 2+4=6. For the second one, you move the top left stick in the nine to change the minus to a plus, making it 2+1=3. Who got them both right?)
