Make treasure maps - may be used to follow a trail as well.


Decent quality paper - prestain,tear edges and crumple the paper so it looks old-ish
Felt tips, paints


Children have to draw the outline of their island. Then add landmarks (mountains, trees, deadly swamp, etc).
They then draw or write instructions to find the treasure (marked of course with an 'X').
