As you explore Houston Parks, be looking for treasure boxes, just under the mulch and gravel... or bring your own to hide!
My kids decorated a container with markers, added some notes and some real treasure... Matchbox cars, bracelets and frogs.
At first the kids were a little unsure about burying treasure for someone they did not know... and not being around to see it found. But I told them it would make someone feel special and that was a good enough reason for me.
After some thought, they agreed. Mostly. My youngest wasn't so sure about treasure that wasn't for him, but went along with the plan.
