“Treasure Map,” Tambuli, Oct. 1993, 16
To make an old-looking treasure map, you will need: paper (brown wrapping paper works well), a pencil or black pen, and crayons or colored pencils.
For a family home evening, hide a treasure—either the refreshments or an object to be used in a lesson.
Draw a map on the piece of paper that shows where the treasure has been hidden.
Crumple the paper into a tight ball.
Carefully uncrumple the paper and smooth it out.
Repeat steps 3 and 4 five to seven times, until the paper is very old and worn looking.
6. Place the paper between two heavy books to flatten it.
