Once the treasure map is printed you can also draw landmarks, arrows, hints, and clues on top!
You can even tea dye the paper and rip the edges to give it that real life treasure map feel!
If nothing comes up load the location in Google Maps and switch to Satellite/Earth view and check the landmark photos.
Then place your treasure map over it and you’ll be able to see the image through the paper!
When you zoom in it will give you the layout and key landmarks.
Start adding these landmarks to your map using a pencil.
Then, on the day give, your team/kids the first piece of the map and explore together until you get to the end!
Also add a dashed line, as the walking trail, and a large X to mark where the loot is!
Although a plain white map is 10x cooler than doing nothing with a little more effort you can totally WOW the kids/team!
So why not go the extra mile and try one of these tricks to add some more authenticity: Rather than hand drawing your map you can simply print it out from Google Maps!
