Fun Scratch Off for the Kids

Do your Kids LOVE anything Scratch Off? Mine do. They are always begging me to buy those lottery tickets, you know, the ones where you never win anything.

The kids discovered that they could make their own over the weekend. I'll show you how, but first the riddles: Why didn't the lady run from the man eating lion?

Because he was a MAN- Eating Lion!

What do you call a fish without an eye?


What do you call a cat who drinks lemonade?

A sour puss! See!

Have the kids write the answer in sharpie, then color over it thickly with black crayon. This is your scratch off area. Color your picture around this black cover up. Be creative with your drawings. You could do party invitations, notes to pen pals, jokes to Grandparents, quips to cousins, secret messages to BFF's. A fun little project for all.
