x marks the spot

Julianna has a game she likes to play.  She'll get Jonathan to draw a "map" of our house on a dry erase board and then he hides an object somewhere in the house.  He marks an X on the location of the object on the map and we see how fast she can find it.  This requires her to demonstrate map-reading skills, including following directions, judging distances, and reading a legend (if he includes one).  I thought I'd share it here in case any of you wanted to try it out.

We actually haven't played it in a while, but I saw something here that reminded me of it.  We might hit up the Target dollar bin for some prizes and break out the dry erase board again soon to see how she does.
