All of the crafts took hardly any time at all to make. The one that took the longest was this Treasure Chest Craft made from Popsicle craft sticks and an empty tea box. After gluing the Popsicle craft sticks on to the box, my toddler painted them brown. While he painted, I painted 6 different sticks black. When it finished drying, I cut the black sticks with a scissors so they fit on the box without any of it hanging over. To finish, I glued them in place and added a gold sequin (keyhole/lock).
I knew my little guy would love doing a Treasure Hunt. In order to make it suitable for his age (toddler), I decided that taking pictures of the places I planned to hide his treasures would be a fun, easy way that he could understand. I used Photoshop to place the photos randomly on a letter-sized page which I then printed. Alternatively, you could print pictures in a smaller size and glue them on your page.
Not wanting to purchase anything for any of the crafts, I searched online for a Gold Coins Printable. You can print it here.
Here are some photos of him on his adventure.
