Let's go on a treasure hunt!
We need to find the Paper Pirate Treasure!
Do you have a lot of paper grocery bags shoved in a cupboard at your house?
I know I do.
Ever wondered what to do with them?
Did you know you can turn them into a Paper Pirate Treasure?
Complete with a treasure chest and maps?
Here's how you do it!
It's really just a lot of cutting and gluing.
Feel free to decorate it as you want! Use whatever you have around the house.
Let it dry overnight.
Then, make a map of the designated treasure hunt area.
We used a black sharpie. Cut and slightly burned some of the edges. Put a few burn holes in it for an authentic feel, crumpled it up and then got it wet. Let it dry overnight.
Load up the Paper Pirate Treasure chest and then hide it! X marks the spot!
Watch the fun begin!
Paper Pirate Treasure hunts encourage map reading, team work and problem solving skills!
Of course, there's a reward at the end!
Spoils to the victorious ones or as my daughter said, “Pirate Cheetos! ARRRRR!“.
Even after they had found the Paper Pirate Treasure, my kids played more. They enjoyed hiding it from each other and finding it over and over again.
It was fun to make and even more fun to watch my kiddos enjoy the activity!
