The 5 Miles from Home Game
Take an old-fashioned (i.e., paper) map of your town. Measure the distance of five miles on its key. Mark that distance on a piece of string (or dental floss, whatever you've got). Tack one end of the string onto the location of your house on the map. Attach a pen to the other end. Circle the pen gently around your house, leaving a clear circle on the map. Have the youngest person in the family place her finger anywhere on the circle. Drive to the actual location, get out and take a picture of you and whatever's there.
