To Do SLC with Kids: Letterboxing

• 29 October 2007

Several months ago I read about letterboxing on Design Mom (click 2/3 down the page to view this link) and became intrigued by this clandestine hobby. We decided to try it out awhile back and the kids had enough fun that I'm definitely going to do it again. The next time, however, I will be a little more discerning about the location of the hunt :) This first hunt took us by some sketchy areas.

Next up...the letterbox at Red Butte Gardens! Anyone want to come? Complimentary jelly bellies for all participants!

Ah, so this is a kids version of geocaching. Sounds like a good way to get outside and do some treasure hunting. And kids love stamps, right?

I had never heard of this. Sounds like a great hobby! Just the thing to fire up some kids' imaginations! I wish I could come!

That sounds so fun. Just right for my treasure hunting kids. Let me know about the Red Butte Garden Hunt - we would love to come.

Thanks for telling us about this! We are off this morning to find the one letterbox in our little town. What a fun thing...
