Scavenging Fun
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     "Did you get a final total yet, Nicole?" asked Mom.
 
2     "I think so," said Nicole as she counted the checked-off names on her list. "There are eleven coming, not counting me."
 
3     "Good," said Mom. "That means we can have six teams of two or four teams of three people. That is a nice-sized group."
 
4     "How many things should be put on the list?" asked Nicole.
 
5     "I think twenty-five to thirty items should be plenty. Some should be really easy to find, but a few should be more difficult. Challenging games are the most fun," said Mom. "I think I should make up the list so no one can accuse you of cheating."
 
6     "I can hardly wait until school is out Friday afternoon," said Nicole.
 
7     "Having a scavenger hunt party will be a good way to start off the summer," said Mom.
 
8     Friday finally came. It was just a half day of school, so the partygoers arrived about mid afternoon. Nicole's friends were assembled into groups of three, and then they were given a list of articles to find.
 
9     "Some of these are too tough," said Sue. "How are we supposed to find a goose feather?"
