To make an old-looking treasure map, you will need: paper (a manila envelope works well) and a pencil or black pen.

  1. 1.

    For a family home evening, hide a treasure—either the refreshments or an object to be used in a lesson.

  2. 2.

    Draw a map on the piece of paper that shows where the treasure has been hidden.

  3. 3.

    Crumple the paper into a tight ball.

  4. 4.

    Carefully uncrumple the paper and smooth it out.

  5. 5.

    Repeat steps 3 and 4 five to seven times, until the paper is very old and worn looking.

  6. 6.

    Place the paper between two heavy books to flatten it.
