Great Barrier Reef Fun Activities for Kids

February 13, 2009


To prepare for the best job in the world as caretaker on Hamilton Island, Queensland, Australia, the other day the redheaded boy and I scoured the internet for videos, games, and informational sites about the Great Barrier Reef and sea creatures in general. A search on the National Geographic site offered up this maze as well as the following links. We hope you enjoy checking these links out!!

    Well, I think you are clearly the most qualified and most-prepared individual for the job.

    Well, yes, we’ve always known you were the most qualified and most prepared person for the job… now we have confirmation that you are the coolest mom, too.

    I love how you involve the boy in all your endeavors. :-)
