We have a special verbal game we play with our grandchildren. We call it our Adventure Story. It’s interactive and everyone can participate. It’s a “to be continued …” story where we travel wherever our imaginations take us and we have a remarkable time. Anyone and everyone can be in our Adventure Story. (Recently Britt was there carrying Yoda in her backpack!) We leave it to Cody, our 8-year old grandson, to make our Adventure Story pure magic!
Patricia Babuka and Scott Schaefer of Grandcamp Adventures have brought an adventure story to print in a delightfully illustrated book. Written by Walter Sorrells and illustrated by Victor Tavares, Here We Go! is the story of eccentric (in a fabulously fun way) grandparents who take their grandchildren on an exciting adventure around the world.
While Papa and Grammie are on holiday around the world they find that many of their precious treasures have been lost through a hole in the baggage compartment of their plane.
The adventure begins when their grandchildren, Savannah, Luca and Aiden, arrive for a visit.
Papa and Grammie explain the “disaster” that has happened and then they all set off on an adventure traveling the world over to find the lost treasures. Using a magic compass, their travels take them to castles in England, the jungles of the Congo, the beaches of New Zealand, Chinese New Year in China and a local family gathering in Venezuela.
Before the family arrives back home, they’ve experiencing fabulous customs and traditions of various different cultures. It truly is an Adventure Story of a lifetime!
And there’s a lot more to Grandcamp Adventures. The website includes wonderful references for traveling with grandchildren, music & toys for purchase along with games and activities to do with your grandchildren (or children!).
I’m head over heels in LOVE with Grandcamp Adventures! We’re big on travel and in the last month have been to both Shanghai and London. We’re looking forward to taking our grandchildren along with ua sometime soon.
