Things To Do
“We are off for a walk”, said Mum
“No thanks” said Jen “I don’t want to come
I’d rather stay here and just hum!”
“We are off for a walk”, she said
“Come on get up, get out of bed”
“Nah not me” said Jen and buried her head.
“We are off for a walk” Mum called
“You’ll miss your chance for ices cold
And other goodies” she bawled.
“We are just out for a stroll”, she cajoled
“It’s sunny and nice and we won’t go far”
But Jen stays quiet, she’s been fooled before!
“Come on” said Mum, “I won’t tell you again
It’s time to get ready and get out of your den”.
“No way, not even if you count to ten!”
“OK, said Mum “I am getting irate,
And if you don’t get up, we are going to be late
And really Jen, I’ve got enough on my plate!”
“Why won’t you come” asks Mum so sweet
“Cos its boring and dull and not up my street
I want adventures to get on my feet!”
“Something to do as you walk along
That’s what will make a right from wrong
And there’s no point in just singing a song!”
Ah, something to do Mum looked a bit sly
“I know what will bring you outside” she did cry
“Some clues and a story all about a clever spy!”
“Hmm, that sounds like it might be fun
Can I wear a hat and carry a gun?”
Mum said to Jen – “Sure thing little one!”
So she got herself all ready to go
“Come on Mum, you’re being so slow
I want to go now, don’t say no!”
“Wait” said Mum, “I need to download
A spy mission booklet to find out a code
And we can have fun just up the road.”
Ready at last, Mum locked the Yale
Off out for the day on a fun Treasure Trail
We laughed and we laughed and did not fail.
One of the best things to do we know
When Jen is ready and we head out to go
To find and defeat the spy master’s foe!
There’s hide and seek and sorting out a clue
And lots of walking although you don’t realise you do
And then at the end we are tired right through!
Treasure Trails ticks lots of boxes, we love playing games
And that is the point and one of her aims
A perfect day out our Mum always claims!!
