Sandpit treasure hunt

To make a treasure map we used an A4 sized paper, ripped the edges and scrunched it up to make creases. Using black tea we flattened it out and painted the tea onto the paper. Let it dry overnight or if in a hurry use a hairdryer to dry off the paper
The finished product
This was our sandpit that we made into our land of treasure and Tara used the map to follow the hunt to find the "x"

Tara followed her map and started at the hill top goats and she crossed 3 pebbles...

Made her way over the bridge

Across 5 diamond stones to the gorilla and panda forest

Then over 9 square stones to the crocodile creek

Through the grazing cows and around the 8 triangle corner stones

Up 4 hexagon hill watching out for the mega birds nest on the left

She used her wooden dolls to do the search

Found the "x" marks the spot

Started to dig and she found the treasure box

Full of treasure!


  1. Love, love, love the little sandpit world you have created (especially the pool for the crocodile!)

  2. i like the idea of the treasure map. very fun!!!
