Ahoy there! Here's how to make a pirates' treasure chest out of corrugated cardboard. Fill it with chocolate coins and other treasure and have fun setting your own treasure hunt. It would also make a fantastic decoration for a pirate-themed party.
: 1 hour
: Over 10s
We used two baby wipes boxes
Box net opened out
Box reversed and re-glued to give a nice outer surface to paint. Leave a small flap at the back edge to glue your lid on to. We later trimmed the flap you can see in the photo to about a centimetre depth
Two curved part circle components with fringed edges to stick to the top part of the lid
Rectangle cut out and bent into a curved arch
Part circle components glued onto the arched rectangle to make the lid
Lid glued and taped ono the flap of the box
Ready to decorate
We stuck some paper to the inside to cover up the baby wipes pattern
We found a old buckle in the garage to stick on
The pirate treasure chest is now ready to fill with treasures. We packed the bottom of the chest with some plastic bags and fabric so that we only needed a small layer of treasure and the box looked nice and full.
