Have you ever tried geocaching? It is a game of hiding and seeking “caches” of treasure. Players can place a cache anywhere in the world, pinpoint its location using a GPS device, and log their cache online or share with friends. Anyone with a GPS device or smartphone can then try to locate the cache. It makes for the perfect birthday party for teens and older kids!
