My sister and I were looking for a way to entertain her two boys and my son this afternoon. It was much to nice to have them simply hanging out and playing the Wii today. So after I took care of some needed work on my car, we loaded the boys up and went searching for treasure. I had noticed a geocache near a local, Sussex Corner playground and decided to make a game out of it for the boys. Before going out I showed the boys where the cache was located using the Geocaching website and had them memerize the clues. There were some pictures to view as well so we looked at them so they knew where to go and look.
Once we got to the park though the boys had other ideas. They simply wanted to go and play on the playground. It took a bit of convincing to get them to go search out the cache. I played a little bit of hot and cold with them and before long they spotted the hanging film cannister. They were a little dissappointed that it was only a log style cache but that was quickly forgotten when I told them the treasure was the playground.
It was a great day to get out and have fun and geocaching is an awesome way to add to the day.
