Treasure Maps

map

Brooke (4) and Amelia (2) are into treasure maps. They like to pretend they’re on a quest or mystery solving expedition. I’ve learned to abide by a few simple rules when making maps:

– They must have items the girls like on them.
– Said items should be connected by dotted lines.
– An X has to be involved.

That’s it. If you can do that, you’re an expert treasure map maker. Yesterday, as I made maps, Brooke put her finger on her chin and furrowed her brow as she examined the kitties and hearts, “Well, it looks like we have a mystery on our hands!”
