Let's Play: Treasure Map

I was a bit stumped when after watching an episode of Jake and the Neverland Pirates Meg asked me if we could make a treasure map.  But I managed to cobble something together!

What you need:
- Large piece of paper
- Colouring pens
- Good imaginations!
- Teabag (if you wish to make it look old)

What you need to do:
This kind of craft relies on your toddler having a good imagination and you having the ability to draw.  As we had one out of the two I did my best but I know my drawing leaves a lot to be desired!

Very simple just create different places on your map, 'rocky place', 'crabby's cove' etc.

If you wish to make it look authentic you can use the old method of rubbing a wet teabag over it and crisping it in the oven/with a hairdryer.  I started this but our map was so big I gave up so we have a half new-half old looking map but heyho!
