Telling Parents/Inlaws They Are Going to be Grandparents Scavenger Hunt

We were going to get in late one night to my wife’s parents house. We decided that instead of telling them we were pregnant in a boring way that we would lead them on a scavenger hunt the next morning to discover the news in their presents at the end… A positive pregnancy test and homemade T-shirts that say I’m going to be a Grandpa/Grandma (and uncle for her little brother).

Say No to Strangers – Scavenger Hunt Rule

If someone you don’t know asks you to do something with them – say no!!!! It’s the right thing to do! Then tell a police guard, an adult, or someone you trust, they will find a way to complain.
