I first tried this with the boys a few summers back and they loved it. The very fact it’s something which they can use via their mobile phones was the main appeal I suspect. You start by downloading an app on yours (or your kids’ phones) and heading out to wherever you fancy. There are a few free ones available so don't feel you have to spend out. Once you’ve arrived at your location, you use the app to look for hidden geocaches. The ones we’ve found have been small toys which someone’s left in a container and we’ve then replaced them or returned them. It’s all about the hunt really and the satisfaction of finding a hidden treasure!
