Jr. Ranger and other fun activities

***Two fun activities for families of all ages that we enjoy are 
geocaching and letterboxing.  There are modern day scavenger hunts!  
Geocaching uses a GPS for finding the treasures.
Letterboxing uses clues to find the treasures and you sign the logbook with stamps and you collect stamps at each box found.

There are hundreds of thousands of treasures to be found all over the world!  Part of the treasure found is time with family and really cool locations!

***Our kids participate in the Junior Ranger program at national parks.
If you can't make it to a national park, be a WebRanger!

Their vests hold their Jr. Ranger badges and patches earned.
Their workbooks go into their homeschool portfolios, too.
I love those smiles!
