This was great fun for my 8 year old – we bought about 10 gifts and hid them around the house and garden. He had so much fun following the clues to find them – would really recommend as something extra special to do. Ours was pirate themed (naturally)
Bought a metal detector for my cousin and her family. They love it – the kids really enjoy going on the beach and having a dig for some treasure. They are not that expensive either and it makes a really unusual gift. I got one for around £60 on ebay, but there are some companies you can find online.
