I made one of these last year so this time around I took a lot of in-process pics and made the map bigger. This one is 2'x3' cause Staples couldn't laminate any bigger. I gave it to the kid with some dry erase markers so he can make his own X.

Click on pics for bigger:




Tutorial: http://www.instructables.com/id/A-Treasure-Map/

I did all the basics, islands, towns, castles, etc. and then had to add some geeky stuff to it.


Cthulu, Waldo, Mola Ram, a Tardis, the Eye, the Canyon of the Crescent Moon, a shipwrecked guy drying his tighty whiteys on a tree.


An AT-AT


An empiral probe, yeti, crashed Enterprise

More pics are on my blog and the tutorial on Instructables has more information on the process. It's really easy.

As a grown-up I'd love to get something like this!  So much fun, fantastic detailing, the geekery elements...the ever-present kid in me is crying out "Ple-e-e-a-a-ase, Mom, can I have one, too?!?"  How much fun would this be as a floor play mat?  Ooo, or a vertical one mounted onto a fridge or metal cabinet with little magnet figures and vehicles, and stuff.

This is awesome. My kids are really into pirates right now. I'm sure they would love something like this. You have a very lucky kid.
