12 DIY Giant Treasure Map Sticker Scenes
Great Craft at Birthday Party
We had these at my daughter's 3rd birthday party. They were a hit with all the kiddos. Lots of stickers and really fun.

A Great Buy
This was a great part of the party. Had a pirate theme and the kids liked making the map. Didn't really have any issues with the stickers not sticking. I would recommend it with a older group than 5 year olds, but they still liked the stickers. Great looking map and the stickers were really cute. Made a cool map!

Kids love this activity!
I spent the last two weeks of the school year doing a unit on pirates with my second grade class and as one of the activities I had the students make treasure maps using these sticker maps. The kids LOVED this activity! Some of the students spent over an hour working to make their maps just they way they wanted them. I liked how the stickers were just the right size for the students and they were repositional, which is a real plus for young children. I would definitely recommend getting them laminated because the stickers do not stick very long and some fell off not long after the students were finished. However, for the overall price and quality of this activity, I would definitely recommend this for a classroom activity. I will be ordering these maps again next year.

I loved the concept of the kids making their own treasure map. I decided to make one myself before the party to use for decoration. The quality was awful. None of the stickers would stick to the paper. I tried several different sheets to be sure it wasn't just the page I had but they were all like that. VERY DISAPPOINTED. Now we are short an activity for the party tomorrow.

Good for pirates
We've bought these maps for years¿¿¿.love them¿¿¿they are great for "pirates" to decorate to lead them to the treasure! However, be aware the stickers do not stick. It keeps the kids busy and has more than enough stickers but most don't stick. So when the child goes on a treasure hunt, quite a few of the stickers are popping off. Sometimes we resort to letting the child use the background and draw with crayons the path to the treasure.

bigger then I thought
The pirate maps are of good quality and a lot bigger than I thought they would be. I have more than I need so I will be putting one under the treasure chest cake I will be making for my 5year olds birthday.

Great pirate treasure maps
These are great for younger kids. We will be making maps for buried treasure this summer and my grandsons will love being able to make their own maps with these stickers.

Enjoyable for young kids
I put these down under the pirate loot bags and used as place mats prior to food being served. They were a huge hit, although the stickers dont stick to the "map" very well, they curl and peel on their own. The kids still really enjoyed being able to make their own maps with the variety of the stickers.

Maybe ages 5 and up?
I bought this for a preschool party for 3/4 year olds, as a group craft activity. However, we ran into a number of snags, even with a number of parents and teachers on-hand to help.
-- Some of the stickers (like the dotted lines) did not stick well and popped-up.
-- Thinner items, like the palm trees and sometimes the ships' flags, were very easy for the kids to rip, esp. if they started pulling it from the bottom vs. loosening the leaves first.
-- The kids seemed to understand the idea of a 'treasure map' but only some got the idea of creating a path to reach the treasure. Sea things sometimes went on land, and vice versa.
-- When completed, we rolled up the kids' maps to put in goody bags to take home. When we got our child's map home and unwrapped it, a number of stickers had already come loose again and had to be pressed/flattened.
So, a great idea (my daughter said it was her favorite of the craft activities at the party). But sticker quality was a bit dubious, and it might work better with slightly older kids (at least as a group activity), or with younger ones if more 1-on-1 without planning to roll up the map afterward.
