Here is a fun QR Code Activity your kids can do while you are cooking in the kitchen. Simply print out the QR codes here.
Cut them apart and place them around the house. Depending on your children's ages, you can make the codes easy or hard to find. Hint: If you want the activity to take awhile.... hide the codes really well!
Then give your child your smart phone or iPad with a QR Code Reader. I like Qrafter Pro but you can use any free QR code readers out there.
They will scan each QR Code that they find and then accomplish the challenge that they are given. Each QR Code asks them to take a picture of something that they are grateful for. Here are the QR Code Challenges:
#1 Take a picture of something in nature that you are grateful for.
#2 Take a picture of something in the house that you are grateful for.
#3 Take a picture of someone younger than you that you are grateful for.
#4 Take a picture of someone older than you that you are grateful for.
#5 Take a picture of a food that is going to go on the Thanksgiving table that you are thankful for.
#6Take a picture of an animal or pet that you are grateful for.
#7 Take a picture of a toy that you are grateful for.
#9 Take a picture of something unusual that you are grateful for.
#10 Take a picture of something God gave you that you are grateful for.
When your child comes back with his or her 10 pictures you will be able to talk about all the things that he or she is grateful for. This will lead to such a fun conversation. Maybe you can sneak him a taste of something yummy that you are cooking as a reward!
If you have more than one child doing this activity, perhaps one child can scan and the other can take the picture or they could take turns with one child doing all the odd numbers and one child doing all the even numbers. Better yet, steal all the smart phones from all the grown ups in the house and send all the kids out to accomplish this challenge!
