Welcome to my crafty little world of things I heart…

Geocaching Kit for Girl Scouts

by Holly

I designed this kit for my Girl Scout troop, who are earning their Geocaching badge, and thought I would share.  It’s great family fun, and the best part, it’s free!

For those of you that don’t know what it is, it’s a worldwide treasure hunt with about 2 million of them hidden. You find them with a GPS.  When you find it, you sign the log book, and some of them have Swag, (treasures) you can trade with.  You probably have them right around the corner from where you are right now.  Go to Geocaching.com to see what is around you.  You can download a free ap on your phone too.  I bought the $9.99 version for my iPhone, and it’s worth every penny.   We go Geocaching all the time.  It’s so fun!!

I took my Girl scouts on a Geocaching bike ride, we feed ducks, played in a park, and hunted for Cache. It was so much fun!!  You must try it!

They found the 1st one!!  Yay!!

Here are my Girl Scouts Looking for Cache at the duck pond:

This little box is a First Aid box found at Wal-Mart for $1.00.  Which we used what was inside on our First Aid Badge. (Will post that one later)

A little Log Book.  Just Print the cover on Card Stock, and print a few more pages on regular paper, staple in the middle and fold.  Easy Peasy!  Love my little pink pencil to go with.  {{Squeal}} The back says “God Bless You”

The inside lid has the Girl Scout Law glued in so you can see it when you open it.  Then our Swag.  Love to find swag!!  Swag is treasure you find/ exchange while out Geocaching.  We got out our bling, and Mod Podge, and had ourselves a little Swag party!!  For the clear rocks, with the pics under them, I printed things on picture paper, and then Mod Podged to the bottoms.  For the Hello, and Bless You, I just wrote on scrapbook paper with a pen, and MP it with a thin coat.  The Hearts are actually fabric scraps, MP on.  The little flowers were cut with a tiny hole punch, and some bling was added.  Now we have a whole box of swag to trade!!

Here is the SWAG necklace Lexi wears when we hunt.  She keeps pieces of swag to trade and a pen inside.  She has it on a long necklace so she can wear it.  It is the perfect swag necklace.  Hands are free to hunt for Geocache and she has the things she needs handy.

It’s done in the hoop, click on the pic to get to the link

Hope you are inspired to go Geocaching.  Trust me, you’ll love it!!

Here are some printables for you.  Open them in a Paint Program
