We were inspired by a Sendung mit der Maus, the German program that the boys watch, to make a 'Bottle Post.' (Noah's translation, not mine.) This is going to sound a lot like Letterboxing (I think that's what it's called), but our version is much less sophisticated.
Noah drew a map and we stuck it in a bottle.
Then we went for a bike ride. Noah has the bottle taped onto the back of his bike.
We found a good (cough, cough) hiding spot. In this case, a drainage ditch under a sidewalk.
And we left behind our Bottle Post. Man, it might be spring-like temperatures, but it is DRY in Colorado.
Now, this was KIND OF a successful adventure, and KIND OF NOT. I wanted Noah to draw a map of the location of the Bottle Post, and then give it to someone so that he could find it. He wanted to draw a map to put inside the Bottle Post. I can understand why this makes sense to him: the Bottle Post is suppose to show you where treasure is...I guess. But who is going to be able to find the Bottle Post without a map? We never reached a consensus on this map point.
In the real world: what neither Noah nor I addressed? Um...it looks like trash. So, anyway.

And splashing in puddles on the deck. Because it's dry out there.
