What if I told you there was an app that could get kids outside and thinking about preparedness? Would you believe me? For some reason parents think that they should not be part of the children’s relationship with the electronics. In fact, most of the time kids have their “screen time” while parents have their own.
Not all games or apps are tailored towards making kids couch bound, overweight creatures with drool on their chins. Instead, if you integrate yourself and outdoor activities in these apps you can really find some gems.
One such gem is the Geocaching community. The Geocache app is basically a world wide treasure hunt.
Its harder than ever to get kids outside. The world of entertainment is strong and its just getting better. Video games are more immersive than ever and kids are falling deep under the trance. Geocaching is a game of seeking out GPS located caches that are made to be found. They are in urban areas and in wooded areas.
The survival cache can be an incredible method for successful prepping. Good luck integrating that into your kids world. How do you explain that you should bury ammo, food or guns in a box at the park without getting a call from the guidance counselor? Well Geocaching is all about caches and while you don’t need to explain the grim aspects.
Learn About Survival in your Area
In getting your child outside you will also have the ability to teach them about their environment. This might be the outdoors or it could be the urban environment. Either way Geocaching will give you the ability to get out into the environment in areas you never have before. Take advantage of that time with your kids.
