I love pirate loot, the gold coins and sparkly diamonds.

I volunteered this summer, 2012, to plan and implement some crafting projects for my community.  This is one of the activities that we will be doing.  The age range is 4th grade through 8th and it is an introduction to sewing craft.  The children will learn how to do a straight seam and how to finish that seam.  Of course, there is also the need to create the secret treasure map contained inside of the bag.

Step 1: SUPPLIES
