- empty kleenex box
- some black and yellow construction paper
- a printer
- and something to colour with.
If you are doing this craft for a party, you may wish to pre-do up to Step 3.
Cover the kleenex box with black construction paper (all sides). Use enough glue that when we slit open the top the paper will stick.
Using sharp scissors, have an adult cut around 3 sides of the kleenex box, about an inch from the top (so the treasure chest opens). You will need to bend back the cardboard on the remaining, attached side so the chest opens and closes nicely.
Glue a piece of yellow or red construction paper, felt or tissue paper to the inside of the "lid" and chest (so it looks like a nice velvety lining)
Now comes the fun part! Print out the template.
Colour the pieces, as necessary and cut them out
Cut 1/2 inch strips from yellow construction paper and glue them to all the edges of the treasure chest.
Glue the Bible verse on the top of the chest.
Glue the lock onto the front of the chest
Glue the handles onto the sides of the chest.
OPTIONAL: Glue sequins, fake jewels or painted rocks onto the lid for a jewel encrusted treasure chest
OPTIONAL: You may wish to glue the key template to some cardboard before your cut it out to make it more durable.
Fill with gold coins (chocolate ones are my favorite!)
