Snap up adventure in your backyard. Watch out for crocodile-infested swamps on this treasure hunt!
Treasure hunts are SO exciting when you’re watching for crocodiles—or other wild creatures—in your backyard. Here’s one way to set up your adventure!
Make a rustic map! Tear, crumple, and then flatten scraps of brown paper bags to look like old paper, leaves, and tree bark. (If you have fallen leaves or birch bark in your backyard, ask an adult if you can use them.) Attach them to posterboard or other slick paper with Crayola® School Glue. Draw a meandering path on the map with Crayola Glitter Glue. Air-dry glue.
Draw raging rivers, crocodile-infested swamps, rugged mountain ranges, or other details on your map with Crayola Markers.
Come up with clues. Cut several rectangles from white sticky paper (mailing labels). Cut slightly larger construction paper rectangles. Stick labels on rectangles. Number and decorate your clue locations with Crayola Gel Markers. Glue clues along the path
Design and fill your treasure chest. Cover and decorate a box for your treasure chest. Attach gemstones or other decorations. Air-dry glue. Tuck your treasure in the chest and hide it.
Search! Ask your friends to join the hunt. Your map will lead everyone on a fun-filled expedition!
