Finding Buried Treasure
Small rocks, gold spray paint, a box filled with dirt or sand, small shovels or sifters from your beach toy bucket
Have you noticed that little kids love sparkly items? With this activity your child can pretend to be a pirate searching for lost treasure or an archaeologist searching for ancient artifacts. Take some little rocks and spray paint them gold. Older children can "help" with this part of the activity. Then bury the "treasure" in a box of sand. Give your child a small shovel or sifter and have them begin the search!
