Caches that are recommended for kids

If you’re tall or small, if you’re green or blue, there is a cache that is best suited for you. With Attribute Search, it has become easier to find just those caches. To curate a list of some of the best caches for kids, we filtered by the attribute Recommended for kids, sorted our results by Favorite points, and picked different locations to give you some of the best caches for our youngest geocachers.

“Are we there yet?” Gyro Gearloose (or Daniel Düsentrieb as he’s known in Germany) gives you and your kids a well deserved break when traveling on Germany’s highway A5. Located at a rest stop, you have to stop your engine and rev up your brain to unlock the tool that will reveal the logbook.

One other activity our youngins are often less fond of is visiting a museum. You’re probably not surprised that the solution here is once again a fun geocache. Located inside the Helsinki City Museum is this always dry, coin and SWAG filled treasure box that’s sure to delight.

The place this Virtual leads you to will amaze the whole family. Local artist Richard Schaefer creates larger than life sculptures made out of recycled metal and automotive parts. Even if your kids aren’t car enthusiasts or obsessed with bugs, they will love the colorful art.

This magical geocache inspired by stories of knights and adventures features no other than the famous sword in the stone. Geocachers young and old can try their luck to pull the large blade from its rock in order to “scribe thy name” as cache owner Diehard50248 puts it. Embark on this journey only if you think you’re one of the chosen!

When I'm outside I'm happy. Besides geocaching I love gardening, hiking, cooking and spending time with my wonderful two and four legged friends. Got eight legs? Sorry, but please stay far away from me!
