Mailbox Game

Here is a fun way to get your kids quickly to/from school. One child runs ahead to the first mailbox and waits to get a high five. Then the second child runs to the next mailbox. It helps that in our neighborhood the mailboxes are clumped together every 3 or 4 houses. Makes for longer runs. ;) Added bonus, the younger child is quite tired at the end of the walk and is willing to sit and play nicely while you are being productive (or not). Unfortunately, still doesn't make him tired enough for a nap. :(. I am not sure of the draw, but they love giving each other high-5s. And, good turn-taking!
