"Geocaching is a high-tech game of hide-and-go-seek using a hand-held GPS device. It may sound difficult, but it isn't. It's a great way to get the whole family outdoors. It's also a wonderful way to bond as a family since you all have to work together to find the "hidden treasure".
A geocache is a hidden container. The container can be a simple, small magnetic key holder with a simple logbook inside or it can be as large as a 5 gallon bucket. A fellow geocacher hides it in a location and provides the GPS coordinates so others can locate it with their GPS devices. That's the whole idea behind geocaching; find the cache! Then, go online to log your find and share your experience."

Give Kids a Camera! What a great idea from Bonnie of BonnieLovesPhotography! She suggests handing kids a disposable (or inexpensive digital) camera to play with while YOU take pictures of them! Great chances for fun shots and keeps them busy and entertained too! Bonus... often the pictures they take turn out better than you'd think!
