Pirate fun

Today is the first day of Finding Fun and what choices there were.

I thought it was too wet to go out and splash in puddles and I might have to buy some wellingtons first!

Anyway, another choice was to make a pirate map.  I've lost count of the times I set this as an activity when I was a teacher but never actually joining in.  And I remember dying paper in cold tea.  Fortunately, Ranger supplies a Distress Ink called Tea Dye so I was able to get much the same effect.

So here is my map:

Can you work out where the treasure is?


  1. Oh I love it. Pirates is our SWAP theme on UKPC for next month and all the members seem to be dreading it, I'll just have to point them in the direction of your blog. Also my son seems to have been singing a pirate song all week. And to top it all I bought some pirate embellishments today for the SWAP. (Whilst out on our walk) Thanks for sharing - BJ

  2. This looks fantastic! I would love to make a treasure map with DD but I don't think she's old enough yet to understand. x x x

  3. Very nice! you know me I love pirates! might have a play with this later as football has been cancelled tonight! Thanks for mentioning my giveaway too :) See you Sunday.

  4. Oh I love this. You can really believe it has been folded in someone's pocket for years and years and lost and found. Thanks for linking.

  5. I love this - will have to put some more thought into finding the treasure though.

  6. I love your map too...I am all fired up to go exploring!

  7. What fun. I want to use this idfea on a card when I have time to play (that is after my French exam)

  8. HI joining you from Finding Fun. I think the treasure is behind the rapids.
    Fun and you made me think too!
