How To Have A Pirate Treasure Hunt

That Peppa Pig has got a lot to answer for you know! Thanks to her and her friends on Pirate Island, we've had to hold a treasure hunt, although I have managed to stop short of making a metal detector to find treasure in the garden. (Maybe we could pretend there's treasure in the defunct vegetable patch which might convince Mr. TBaM to dig it over?)

If you want to have a treasure hunt, you'll need:

pirate craft

a map, a telescope and a treasure chest…

We used these pirate masks which are pre-cut, pre-strung and adhesive.

We used tea bags onto a picture of our garden I'd drawn and The Boy had coloured in. Torn edges make it look more authentic.

And of course, no treasure hunt is complete without a treasure chest and a spyglass to help find the secret stash.

And the reward? The best chocolate coins that mummy can find in August!

I was provided with the linked items by Yellow Moon to see what I could do with them. The ideas and activities are my own.

    This is so wonderful. We love treasure hunts too. I adore all of your props especially the telescope. Thanks for linking up to last week's Tuesday Tots. I'm featuring this on my blog today as one of my favourites from last week.
