Join the Fun: SFM Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

In the November issue of Simply Family Magazine, we put forth a challenge before our readers…Throughout the month, dear reader, you’ve been invited to form teams and take part in a Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt that could potentially last you the whole month through. Just because we’ve had our first snow doesn’t mean we should be banished inside, does it? We say, goodness no!

So, grab your smartphones (bundle up) and snap your way through our Scavenger Hunt list. As you go, post your favorites to Instagram and tag them #sfmtimebeforeturkey. The first team to complete all of the items on the list wins! The winning team will be featured in a blog, here, on the website. Simply email your completed list to localevents@simplyfamilymagazine.com, subject: SFM Scavenger Hunt.
