I love to go to local Farmer’s market almost every Saturday. Last Saturday was a little special. We all knew that April 22 was Earth Day. Our local farmer’s market organized few little yet very interesting event for the children as well as the adults.
Friday Mr. Man received an email from the market, that they were going to organize a scavenger hunt for the children, and they would distribute some plants to the buyers. Both of the events were attractive. First, when I told my son about scavenger hunt, he couldn’t understand that, and was not willing to go. When I told him that, it would be a treasure hunt, then he understood, and agreed to go.
Saturday morning was bright and sunny, perfect for outdoor activities. My son and I went to the market around 9 in the morning. At the entrance they were distributing some annual plants. I needed marigold plants desperately. I was really lucky person. They distributed marigold along with other annuals. I grab one beautiful bright light yellow marigold plant.
Then my son requested the page of the questioners for the scavenger hunt. The questions were very interesting. He went from one shop to another to find out the answers. First he went to the fruit store to find out the exact colors of the apples. Then went to a vegetable to store find the tomatoes. Then he drew the exact shape of tomato. Then he went to another shop to ask the farmer’s name. For the next question he had to ask one shopper, what he/she was buying, and what he/she would cook that vegetable. First he didn’t want to ask the question to any of the buyers. He asked me. I told him that, “I might be a buyer, but I’m your mom. You ask to a different buyer”.
Then he asked one lady who was buying a cabbage. She told that, she was going to shred , and fry the cabbage. Last question was a riddle , and the answer was “honey”. For this scavenger hunt he won two prizes, one of them was a sweet apple. It was a real fun-filled morning. Mom-son duo enjoyed a lot. I bought oh-so sweet strawberries, and black berries, and also some fresh vegetables.
