Pirates Map


  • 3/4 cup cold coffee or tea
  • White paper
  • Blowdryer
  • Markers

How To Make It

  1. Rip all along the edges of your white piece of paper (don't cut them, you need to rip them).
  2. Crumple the paper into a tight ball.
  3. Flatten the paper out and put onto a cookie sheet.
  4. Pour coffee or tea over the paper. Make sure water covers all the paper.
  5. Let the paper soak for about 5 minutes then pour the water out of the cookie sheet.
  6. Leave the paper on the sheet and blow-dry the paper on high for about 5 minutes. Turn the dryer down to low and continue to dry for 2 minutes more.
  7. With your markers, draw your map.

Note #1 Draw a big X to mark the spot of the treasure. Popular treasure map features are directional arrows in the corner (North, South, East, West), water falls, rocks, cliffs, mountains, jungle, cave, coves, pass, beach and palm trees. Popular Pirate map feature names are Bloody Beach, Falls of Doom, Skull Rock, Deadman's Cliff, Captain's Cavern, Serpent Pass, Pirate Cove, and Hangman's Tree.

Note #2 Want to fool your friends? Mark a site on the map with an X and have directions leading to it. Then take some lemon juice and a paint brush. Mark the site of the REAL treasure with an X in lemon juice. Let it dry completely. An adult can hold the paper up to a hot light or over a candle flame. The real X will become visable by turning brown.
