Super Adventure SurveyFor years, Susan and I have taken an alternative approach to gift giving for our niece and nephews. Rather than give them sweaters and other assorted items they really don't want, we decided to give them adventures. Basically, these are full day activities with the two of us. Throughout the year, we ask them for a list of ideas for adventures. We've always encouraged them to think of new, original things. Things they wouldn't normally do with their parents. On Christmas Eve, they get to draw from the ideas they've given us.
With these adventures, there are a few rules. First of all, they must meet a minimum age/ability level. Honestly, they just need to be toilet trained. The other is that eighth grade is the end. Of course, eighth grade means that they will receive one final Super Adventure. This year was the first year this has been in play. Our oldest nephew is currently in eighth grade. Susan and I decided that a Super Adventure will be a trip within the continental United States, but this trip will be a collaborative adventure. Sort of. We developed a simple survey to be completed on Christmas Eve.
It started off like this.
Next, a series of four questions to determine the activity. His answers are included.
Finally, we'll develop the adventure based upon these answers.
Now we need to determine what we are doing and when we are going.
