Another great way to use geocaching with children is to make a historical route through your village. Make them follow a historical figure through streets and alleys and tell them in the cache description about their surroundings at different waypoints. Or let them find scraps of paper, parts of stories and artefacts. They have to gather information to find the cache in the end. I made a cache in my village (GC1575T, it is in Dutch, sorry) and children and adults enjoy it.
Also, a puzzle cache with the reward of going out and finding the real cache also motivates children to solve difficult puzzles, riddles etc.
I never thought of the idea of placing a cache with my class so thank you for this!
