WDES PTO Thanksgiving Escape Room

Hello Friends! I'm Freddie, Washington District PTO's feathered friend, and you're invited to my house for Thanksgiving. I would love to share my family traditions with you. Thanksgiving is a day for family, food, and fun. Help me solve the puzzles that open the locks to celebrate Thanksgiving! Don't be afraid to ask an adult for some help with solving these riddles. I hope you have fun as I share my favorite Turkey Day traditions with you. Once you complete and submit it, you will be entered into a drawing for one of 3 $20 Amazon gift cards! The contest runs from Wednesday, November 18, 2020 through Sunday, November 22, 2020. Winners will be announced on Monday, November 23, 2020. Click here to enter the escape room!
