Play a little Blue's Clues

You can create your own game of clues by setting up a puzzle to solve and clues to be found in order to solve the puzzle. The game can be as elaborate or as simple as you like.

One good way to do this is by setting up the first "clue" in the bathroom so that your child will see it first thing in the morning. Then arrange your day in such a way as to find clues along the way of what you will normally be doing.

Be sure to gear your clues and puzzle to the proper age of your child so your child won't get frustrated.

Your child will enjoy the game and the effort that you put forth in making their day more fun.
