Here's the Birthday Idea--What Do You Think?

Christa's birthday is next Tuesday but we are celebrating it on Saturday night. Here is what we're planning to do: have an American Girl Photo Scavenger Hunt!

Each guest is going to bring an American Girl doll along with them (except for a couple friends who happen to be boys--they don't have a doll)! Everyone will be split into 2 teams and be given a list of things they need to get pictures of. For example: get a picture of a doll wearing a policeman's hat, which would require the team to find a police officer and convince them to give over their hat for a picture!

Each team will have an adult drive them to different places in our local town to try and get pictures of things on the list. Each picture needs to include the entire team and their dolls. And each picture will be worth a certain number of points. The team with the most points in the time allowed is the winner! In the process we all have a lot of fun!

What do you think? What are some creative pictures that the teams need to get? It would be fun to have some AG tie-in for the picture. For example, Kit has a tree house so one item could be "Get a picture of your doll in a tree house", with extra points given if there is a Kit doll in the picture.

Let us know what ideas you have! Thanks for your help!
