Treasure List

Geocaching Treasures Ideas — that we found and left behind and other stuff stashed in boxes
 
We keep a shoebox filled with “treasures” (new or used (yardsales are great for this)) in the car. 
The kids pick two to take with them to trade.
 
When you take something, leave something behind mark it in the box logbook!
“I took (whatever) and left (whatever).”
 
Always put the box back where you found it and close it tight.
 
Critter Warning: Do not leave any food!
