Kids-friendly caches are a blessing for geocaching parents... And they can be very enjoyable for the parents, too . Here is a list of what we call "kids-friendly" caches that we tested ourselves with whatever kids were available .

What does kids-friendly resp. "caches for kids" mean? This can vary widely, and it goes quite beyond the "kids-friendly" attribute.

Straight-forward criteria:
- A nice play-ground along the way
- Cache-tasks especially for kids
- Cache-story interesting for kids
- Special environment with lots of stuff interesting particularly for kids (like animals)

But we also include:
- Adventure caches, i.e. caches that feature the type of terrain or objects that we just loved in our youth (and mostly love today ).

IMPORTANT: Of course, not all caches are suitable for all ages of kids. Hence, we added an age indication: * for ages 1-6, ** for ages 6-12, *** for older kids

GCZ1RR Multi-cache Hexengelage am Omerbach (Nachtcache)

  Well, this is not the typical cache for kids. But our son had a really great time . And with its elaborated physical tasks the cache may even be fun for kids in the more problematic age... Stamina required, though. Can be found near Genk/Belgium/Europe.
