Secret Treasure Map

I knew this would be a big hit. Aren’t maps and treasure always fun for kids?

Using the same technique as our magic letters and numbers, I made a treasure map. First I cut the edges of the paper to make it look a little more like an old treasure map.

Then I drew the map with white crayon on a white paper. I rolled it up and tied a string around it. When I gave it to Love Bug, he had to use his watercolor paints to uncover the writing on the map. It’s so easy to do this type of hidden message, and so much fun for them!

Then we set off to find our treasure.

He needed a little help following the map, but he found the “X marks the spot” location easily.

Afterwards, Love Bug immediately made his own treasure map!
