So, how do you satisfy a real love of puzzles, with a craving for being outdoors exploring the amazing country we live in?
You write PuzzleTrails of course! Especially when you have a child who loves puzzles but prefers screen-time to fresh air.
Our story started with an average family where an urgent need was brewing. How do you make being outside even more fun for everyone? As the kids grew and technology became more of a centrepiece, the need became a mission!
So, we are on the case, taking leave from a time-gobbling, corporate, city based job to explore this passion and to claw back some fun family time together.
Our mission is to get kids outdoors, active and having great fun while they are at it. Why go to the cinema, bowling, laser tag and other indoor venues on a beautiful sunny day? Why suffer through 'are we there yet' when you want to get out and explore?
Some good old fashioned fun is called for. Classic village treasure hunting meets Cluedo...... all in a self-contained, instantly downloadable pamphlet that provides everything you need. Just add printer and a pencil. (No, there isn't an app at this point as that would kind of spoil the whole 'screens away' mission!)
For us, the best bit is that our kids (9 &12) were actually involved in writing and testing all our trails....a sort of double entertainment bonus!
And, who says kids have all the fun? Just last week I met a group of 10 'big kids' wandering around the Botanic Gardens searching for clues. Their motivation? A glass of bubbly with a Harbour Bridge view at the end. Appealing, hey?
So, I am looking to you all to help with the mission. Our job? Write more amazing trails for you to enjoy. Your job? Get your kids outside. Explore this lovely country and have some outdoors family fun.
PuzzleTrails: Outdoor fun for everyone!
