How to draw a pirate’s treasure map
In a map like this you will usually you find:
a. A desert island and a spot where you start.
b. A trail usually made out of dots.
c. Landmarks like:
evidence of castaways
a native tribe
places where people live, for example a hut, a shed, a campsite or a village
perhaps wild and mythological animals
and creatures as sea monsters, bears, dragons, unicorns etc.
You could give these places creepy, scary names:
‘Waterfall of the Final Frontier,
‘Jungle of Danger’,
‘Swamps of Terror’,
‘Viper Pass’, etc.
Just use your imagination.
d. A cross where the treasure is supposed to be.
e. Arrows for guidance on a side of the map pointing
North, South, East and West.
f. Helpful mermaids and dolphins
When you have finished with your map
you can make it look much older
You can roll it up in a scroll
and tie some ribbon or some string around it.
