I guess I will start keeping a list of the teens interested in taking part in the scavenger hunt so if you want you can email me with their names and age.
winikj@bellsouth.net
Here is a picture I saved to show my mom (who is making ours)...



I've heard ALL KINDS of things have been given. I've heard of clothes pins (to keep the curtins closed), tatoos for kids, lots of people go to the dollar tree to buy things. Some people go way out...Some did bottle water with labes, some do scrapbooking things,etc.

You can really do anything you want!

I'll send you an eamil with ds info for the scavenger hunt.

We're in for the fish extenders! Well at least two of our rooms are! Probably not our two rooms with only adults.

[QUOTE=goofygal1975;29611977]So....Who wants to sign up for the Fish Extender Exchange??

Hi Heather,
Please add us to the FE list, we're in cabins # 5520 and 6537.
I was just thinking about this the other day when I was at the mall and saw something at Bath and Bodyworks that might work for a FE gift...we'll have to see how many join in! I had fun on the last cruise with the FE exchange, but there were a lot (125+) to deliver!

We're all kids at heart! A lot of the participating cabins on my last cruise didn't have any actual kids in them at all.

And don't let the fancy FE scare anyone off - I saw some cabins that basically used a tote bag as their FE. You can be as simple or as creative with it as you want.

Oh don't worry my cabin will participate, we had a great time last time. My sister in law will too, I'm just not thinking my parents or inlaws will want to. I'll check though!

I do have to get a new FE though, my last one was awful!!

I found out that is from someone who SELLS them! SO don't worry...they will not all look like that for sure!! I did read in a TR that someone used a hanger and a garbage bag...so don't worry about it!!

Just let me know what two rooms, that way we can add it to the list and map once it's made. Also...all of your rooms can participate! This is for Kids and Adults!! haha..you were posting when I was! I see now you are just waiting to hear from your parents!

We didn't do this on our first crusie either...so I'm not too much help. Basically you hang something on the "FISH" outside your door to hold your gifts that you have received. You deliver gifts to all the people who have signed up! Gifts can be anything really from what I've read. Some people deliver multiple times, others just once. I guess it would make it easier on ourselves to deliver a few gifts per day.

Heather, add us to the FE list. You already have our stateroom # on your list.

This will be new for us too. Guess I'll have to think about what kind of gifts to bring & need to make our FE.

Here fishie fishie fishie (Swedish Chef)

We're in too. I will NEVER be as creative as the one in the photo but I do have some cool ideas for gifts. Gifts for the kids and the adults!!!! (Disney friendly of course).

Can't wait can't wait can't wait. I'm sure Mack (my 7 year old) will LOVE to help me deliver. She had a blast at Secret Santa this year.
