Pirate Map

Have your little Pirates make their very own Pirate Map, complete with a secret "X" marks the spot. A quick and easy Pirate Craft for Kids!

Ages: 5 and Up

Here's what you'll need...

• Brown paper bag or brown package paper
• Black marker
• Lemon juice
• Paint brush or Q Tip

Here's how you make it...

1. Cut a square from your brown paper. Tear the edges (don't cut) so it looks old. Crumple it a few time and then flatten it out.

2. With a black marker draw a map on your brown paper. Some examples are: Cliffs of Doom, Dead Man's Rock, Skull Mountain, and Cross Bones Cove, be creative! Draw a dotted line around the map to show how to get to the hidden treasure.

3. Dip a paint brush into lemon juice and paint the "X" onto the map. When it dries it will be invisible.

4. When you're ready, hold your Pirate Map over a heat source (a toaster works well). You see the "X" appear before your eyes!
