Continents...Sweet! Scavenger Hunt - Snack Attack Update

As some of you may already know, once a month, Sunrise Learning Lab is hosting a themed scavenger hunt as something fun for you to do with your family.  
Our first theme was Continents...Sweet!  
Participants were to find cool snack related items for this hunt...this was our first go at doing a monthly hunt...
Hopefully, for those who participated, it was...
All That and a Bag of Chips!
Kelly from Little Wonders' Days and Jen from Homemade Homeschool are the very first bloggers to put up posts and give me permission to use their photos, so a big thanks to Kelly, Jen,  and their  families!  Little Wonders' Days and Homemade Homeschool are both  getting an extra little somethin' special for being the first ones to submit their sweet snack shots!
Kelly did one detailed post, called the Big Snack Hunt.
Be sure to pop by to see her neat post!
Here is a sneak peak at what Kelly's family made for snacks as part of the hunt...

Antarctic Snacks

Asian Snack Rainbow

Did not figure out the whole Linky thing, so for this month's scavenger hunt, I will just add the links and some of the awesome photos into the scavenger hunt posts as the photos come in to me...
Again, for any of you last minute people who still wanna try to participate in this scavenger hunt...the due date was today, but I will extend it until the end of the week...
Please leave me a comment that you and your family are participating, if you have not done so already...you can just comment on this post or email me directly at cmbmomof2@yahoo.com

As some of you are wrapping up your family's first snack scavenger hunt, here again is the
Continents...Sweet! Scavenger Hunt List...
1. Your family's 3 favorite snacks...please share photos of them, why you like them, as well as the country of origin.

2.  A snack food that is commonly eaten on your continent, but that your family does not like to eat...
Please share photos and tell why you don't like them...

3. Find individual snack items to represent each of the colors of the rainbow..all of the snacks have to be from the continent you are representing.

4. Share your favorite snack recipe and tell the continent this snack represents.

5. Find 2 snacks that are  made to look like something else...for example, "ants on a log"...
photos, please...

6. Take some photos of any of your favorite wrappers / packaging from snack foods that are from the continent you are doing.

7. Try to one find one snack item that is completely new and from a different continent than the continent you are doing. Do a family taste test and share your results.

 All photos and info. for link ups to your post are due in by no later than this Friday! 

The drawing for the snack basket or snack gift card* will be on Friday, as will the downloads of the pdfs for the recipe cards and the International Cookbook...

*Depending on where you live, it may be more feasible to send you a gift card versus a snack gift basket, due to shipping , customs, etc.
