Magical Day of Make Believe

I wanted to do something fun for Valentine's Day for my kids. So, I decided to turn it into a Magical Day of Make Believe.

Ahoy there me hearties! It's a pirates life for me. It's time to begin our treasure hunt. A grand treasure has been hidden is this here lands and it's our job to find it.

I have made some simple clues for younger children. The average house should have these places to hide clues. You can find a zipped file of the clues HERE. The Treasure will be hid in your car with the pirate flag.

The first thing is to have the kiddos dress up like pirates! The Dollar store has lots of accessories for this;)

Now have the kids make the treasure map!
1: Gather supplies
2: Rip out shape of map
3: roll into a ball
4: Open and spritz with water
5: roll into a ball again and work with the paper until it is soft
6: Let dry in the sun
7: Draw the treasure map

Have the kids find the 'treasure' by following the clues! Good luck mate!

I found THIS cute printable for a treasure map. You could cut the paper bag to the size of a piece of paper and print it on that, but I think it's fun to have the kids make their own and let them color this page!
