Before we left we looked at a map of our community. We also checked a special map for geocaches. If you haven't heard of geocaching, I'm sure you soon will. Geocaching is a treasure hunt that is happening all over the world, right now! People can use global positioning systems (GPS) to hide and find treasures.
If you don't have a GPS device, you can easily put the geocaching app on your smartphone. This is the one I use. It costs around $10 but can provide hours of fun and adventure for you and your family.
We decided on three caches to search for. They were all fairly close to our school and also a park that we wanted to play at. We also selected a number of items that we could trade for treasure that we found in the caches (the rule is you can only take something out if you leave something of equal value behind). It's also important to bring a writing tool so that you can sign the log book.
