I've joined a Facebook group where you go out on mini treasure hunts with your children to local nature spots, like forests, parks, beaches, castles etc and follow clues to find "treasure". There are little boxes hidden in these locations with small items to take and you swap it with something else. You then write the date, kids names and their ages. It's really fun and the group had over 5000 members already. We went to Duffus Castle recently and you'll see it in my photo with this post.

It sounds like geocaching. It is a lot of fun and gets me exploring all over the area. But where I live there are no castles! Yours sounds a lot of fun.

I like the idea of a Treasure Hunt. We've done it a couple times for kids' parties. I LOVE the photo of Duffus Castle. Tell me more about the Castle and Scotland.

That would be a big adventure for me. We don't have castles like that accessible around here.

I have heard about these hunts, but I am far too lazy to go on one!

This is a great idea, a wonderful way to interest kids to go outside walking to find the hidden objects.

I think they call that geocaching on the other side of the 'pond'. It sounds fun.
