The kids will do this randomly. Be ready to praise them to get the reward.


spoiler: highlight to see

First watch for the child to dig a hole to China, usually in the back yard to the upper right. Later on if the adults don't fill in the hole, gophers will come to the backyard to the upper left. If you have praised the child before for playing in the grass the child will like to be playing back there anyway. The gopher comes up and you hear a bunch of giggling and kissing, this is when you green glove praise the child to get the trophy.

How to "Chase gophers" goal:
#1: You want to encourage kids to do actions such as "playing on the lawn", playing on the grass, dirt, etc. They are more likely to complete #2 when encouraged to play outside without toys such as the pool, sandbox, or outdoor structure. Encouraging playing with outside toys doesn't count, only things on the grass.

#2: At one point in the game your child(ren) may do the action "Digging a hole to China". Don't stop them! They will dig up a gopher hole.

#3: WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T EVER LET ANYONE FILL THE HOLE!!!

#4: When you hear the child laughing and a kissing sound outside, go and praise them and you will complete the goal.

No problem. I haven't been able to get it done yet, but my friend has and she said that's what you have to do.
Glad I could help!

I just green-handed a child for "Playing on the lawn" and it fulfilled the gopher goal. There was no hole to China. "Playing on the lawn" brings the gophers. You can pick up and drop a child repeatedly until the desired activity occurs if you don't want to wait for it to happen.

Well we dug a hole, but overnight while the computer was off, the hole mysteriously got filled. Now I have to wait until another generation wants to go play in the dirt.
In the meantime, if I get a hole dug again, what do I have to do to keep the hole from being filled in?

finegael we don't need a hole to China, just praise them when they are playing in the grass and or playing on the lawn, and the gophers will come and you will hear a kissing sound. praise them again and you will have the trophy!
