DIY Kids Pirate Treasure Chest

 DIY Kids Pirate Treasure Chest

My son and I made a pirate treasure chest and filled it with “treasure” made from common items.

Step 1:  Get a little wooden chest.  We got ours at Michael’s.  Any little wooden chest will do.

Step 2: Paint the chest with a piece of a sponge:

Painted chest with paints (we used rust, gold, yellow, and purple) and a piece of sponge for painting:

3.  Put stickers on chest, I also used some super glue on some of them to make sure they stuck (I got these at Michael’s in the scrapbooking section):

4.  Put “Pirate Booty” in chest ( I got all of these at Michael’s- gold bells, gold buttons, foam pirate stickers, and glitter pom-poms):

  2. Such a great idea! I will have to try this when Oliver is a little bigger! So clever! :)

    • Caroline- Thank you so much! A little older is better because I have found that if they are not old enough, your house is constantly covered in pirate treasure! Plus if they are too too young, obviously they will put them in their mouths. So maybe age 6 and up depending on the child. I have also made a “Fairy Tale Princess Treasure Box” for my daughter a while ago and bought stuff to sometime make an “Ocean Treasure Box”. : ) -Kristie
