Have you ever found something that you lost so long ago you forgot all about it? Imagine Derek Gamble, who lost his wallet on a train… 30 years later, train driver Michael Massey found it in the seats! Then there was a GoPro camera flying on a weather balloon over the Grand Canyon – until it got blown off course. An Arizona hiker found the camera 2 yearslater, full of amazing pictures of Earth from space. Well worth the wait!

*Wee ones:* If that long-lost wallet had 6 really old coins, what numbers would you say to count them?

*Little kids:* If your favorite Lego piece gets vacuumed up in March and pops out 3 months later, in what month do you get it back? *Bonus:* If the space camera was launched in 2013 and found 2 years later, in what year was it found?

*Big kids:* If you’ve been searching for your favorite sneakers since October 17 and you find them tonight, how many days after losing them did you find them? (Reminder: October has 31 days, and today is November 3.) *Bonus:* If the camera flew 5 miles up and then fell 5 miles down, how many feet did it travel? (Hint if needed: A mile has 5,280 feet.)

*The sky’s the limit:* If you lost your sneakers 10 months ago and found them 4 months later, and you lost your favorite shirt 2 years ago and found it halfway between losing and finding your sneakers, how long were you missing the shirt?

Answers:

*Wee ones:* 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.

*Little kids:* In June. *Bonus:* In 2015.

*Big kids:* 17 days, since Oct. 31 takes you to 14 days. *Bonus:* 52,800 feet, since it traveled 10 miles in total.

*The sky’s the limit:* 16 months. You lost your sneakers 10 months ago and found them 6 months ago (4 months later), making the halfway point 8 months. Your shirt went missing 24 months ago, so from that time to 8 months ago is 16 months.
