We are on Spring Break this week, but stayed home this year. I was looking for something that the kids could do together, and get outside. We started Letterboxing! If you don't know what letterboxing is, it basically is following clues to find a hidden box/bag that contains a stamp and stamp book. We had crazy weather on Monday, so I let them print off clues for several letterboxes in our area, put them in a notebook, pick a family name and choose a rubber stamp to leave in the stamp books in the letterboxes. This will make sense if you check out www.letterboxing.org
. Another website that I really like for this is www.atlasquest.com
- it allows you to set parameters for your area search - including wheelchair accessibility, pet friendly, kid friendly, etc.
We're hooked - and there are letterboxes all over the world!!
