Next stop was singing gate (which was the baby gate we had for when the kids were tiny). There was a piece of card stock taped up with a bunch of tiny clip art pieces all mixed up on it. The kids had to help singing gate sing the right words to his song by putting the pictures in the right order and then all singing together.
Finally, the gate opened so they could go down the stairs to treasure island. I put our ottoman in the middle of the room and put a chair on top of it, then covered it with a sand-colored blanket. I attached different sand-colored shapes all around the ottoman by taping them to the blanket. The shapes were "keyholes". The kids had to look through their backpacks and find the correct item to help them "open" the locks. In each backpack, there was a different white shape - a key. The kids matched their shapes to the keyholes and taped their keys up. Then I lifted the blanket off to reveal...
The kids really seemed to love the activities and have a blast! I had fun watching them!
