Geocaching is a GREAT way to spend some time with your kids and have fun. 
My kids and I have done this many, many times and had fun each time.  We haven't found things everytime, but that's some of the fun of it.
If you haven't tried this with your kids, I highly recommend it.  It's not too expensive and you can spend tons of time with your kids looking.  Plus, this is also a great opportunity to talk with your kids and find out what's going on in their lives.

I agree. My son is barely 5 and I give him the GPS and let him navigate. I you have the phone app you can simply look them up in your area and go for it too. Kids love Geocaching it's treasure hunting for them.

as far as a FREE app I am not sure, and I use iphone ... the official app is $10.

look up a handheld GPS like a Garmin Dakota 10 (thats what I use) http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/spo/3251876936.html you can find them around $80 on craigslist.. this link is just an example..

the live app is pretty cool for your phone as you can post your finds right then and there rather than when you get back home to your PC. Though nothing comes close in accuracy as a handheld GPS.
