Get the kids outside. Try to find a Geocache.

By

Indiana Jones, Goonies, and National Treasure are just a few of the movies I grew up with! What kid, or adult, doesn’t love the idea of hunting for a treasure, trying not to get caught, and hopefully finding the treasure? Sure, nowadays kids use Pokémon Go, but if you want to get your kids interacting with the real world, check out the Geocaching app.

Let’s face it, it gets them outside, kills some time, and teaches them about maps and how to use them. What more could you ask for? You would be amazed at the random spots you can find “Caches”. We have been visiting friends west of Topeka, staying with family in Washington, or just trying to plan a new running/biking route based on the locations close to me and have still been able to find a nearby Cache. At the very least, it is easy entertainment at an affordable price. Just remember, don’t get caught by the muggles. (A term cleverly used from the Harry Potter Movies to describe someone who does not know about Geocaching)
