How to make an old pirate treasure map, for real pirates.

We have been doing a project on pirates for the last month! Today Acey designed his own pirate ship and also made a pirate treasure map.....

To make it look all old and piratey he drew the map on watercolor paper with beeswax crayons, and ripped it around the edges to make it look scruffy, because a real pirate treasure map wouldn't be neat! Pirates are NOT neat!! Then he soaked some tea bags in warm water and dripped them all over the paper to stain it. We dried it with a hairdryer and then crumpled the paper up! Now we just need to find the treasure...
