The rumor of Blue Beard’s treasure is legendary. The key to finding his secret could be right here on this old tattered map. What could be more fun than searching for hidden treasure following this cute map!

What you will need:

  • Brown paper bag
  • Pencil
  • Scissor
  • Crayons, markers or paint
  • Tea bag
  • Lighter
  • (Optional - paint brush)

Step 1

Cut paper bag to desired size. (Mine was about 8 x11)

Draw and label your map. (I did mine in pencil first and then added color)

Step 2

Add color to your map.

Step 3

Use lighter to burn the edges of your map. (I did this over the sink and blew out the flame very quickly. Before it became too big.)

Step 4

Boil water, add tea bag. Let tea brew a few minutes, then cool. Either paint using the water or use the tea bag directly to add color to the map. (This adds color and helps the map curl up)

Step 5

Allow to dry. Let the treasure hunt begin!!
