Now for a lego version of the story! 

Activities

Paper Treasure Chest

 

 

 

 

 

Instructions:

  1. Print out the patterns onto card or heavy paper.
  2. Cut out the patterns on the solid lines. Score all the dotted lines by tracing over them with a pen using a ruler to keep your lines straight. Fold up at all the dotted lines.
  3. Colour the patterns.
  4. Glue the sides of the bottom of the treasure box together at the tabs. Fold down the top edges and glue them down to the inside of the bottom box.
  5. Glue the sides together on the top of the treasure box. Glue the top tabs down to the insides of the top of the treasure box, except for one of the long sides. Glue this tab to the top of the bottom of the treasure chest.
  6. Glue the accessories on, as in the picture.

Alternatively you could try this paper envelope treasure chest:

  1. Print out the envelope chest patterns on to thick paper and cut them out. (Print two Chest Bottom patterns for every one Top pattern – you only need one of these to make one envelope treasure chest)
  2. Colour the patterns.
  3. Fold the pattern and glue it together.
  4. Fold the large tab in and then fold the tab in half towards the outside. Fold the smaller tab in.
  5. Place glue on the inside of the smaller tabs and fold the envelope in half inserting the smaller tabs inside the folded larger tab. Press the envelope closed.
  6. Fold the top of the chest in half and glue the back half to the back of the envelope.

How to make:

  2. If you haven’t downloaded the map, draw your own treasure map
  3. Write the Bible verse on the map
  4. Tear the sides and make little rips to make the paper look worn.
  5. Wrinkle up the paper and then straighten it out several times.
  6. Paint over the paper by squeezing the bags and rubbing them over the map.
  7. Put the map on one side to dry.
