How to Make a Treasure Map
This treasure map provides a fun way for your kids to entertain themselves in the backyard. Whether you want to give your only child an exciting afternoon, or give your child a little extra excitement on their birthday, this homemade treasure map is the perfect solution.
Planning the Treasure Journey
Of course, the most important part of this project is to have something great at the end of the treasure hunt. It can be a birthday gift, or just something special that your child will love to find. Ideas include: A box of candy - Gold and silver foil-wrapped chocolates are ideal A bag of old pennies - Your parents may have an old roll of pennies they've been saving A box of old costume jewelry - You can often find these at yard sales
- 1Plan the area.The map should be based loosely on a real location, such as your backyard, a public park or a nearby field. If you're using a public area, be sure you hide the treasure sufficiently so that no one but the treasure map holder will be able to find it.Advertisement
