I do want to get outside more, especially as the weather is beginning to change. I thought that having a goal would help. I've heard of letterboxing and geocaching. I've even been letterboxing. I think for me, geocaching might be a better choice. You see, I have almost no sense of direction. A GPS will be most helpful. There is also that added fun of it being a treasure hunt and from what I've seen, there are a lot more findable geocaches.
I also like the idea that it gives us a craft to work on together. When you take a treasure from a geocache, you leave a treasure. I wanted something inexpensive to give and fun to make. I came up with Perler Beads! They are fusible beads and there are so many project ideas! And these creations are something that Princess will be okay with giving away.
We started working on some creations for practice. The ones we will give, I want to keep the creations on the small side to make sure they'll fit in the geocache box...not that I have any idea how big a geocache box is. ;) We got started a few days ago and Princess loves this project! She has spent a lot of time designing her own creations and copying templates we've found on the internet.
My job is to find the colors she needs and she creates the designs. It's really nice having this quiet time, working together on a project. We haven't done anything like this in a long, long while.
