Let me tell you a story of how it happened.

Last year around this time my son happened to find a series of strange and related clues that eventually led to the digging up of buried treasure

The first thing he found was a piece to a map along with a few other strange items

The scrap of paper had some weird stuff on it, but wasn’t folded in any way. If I remember right we had to align it with something to figure out where to fold it. Below is what we saw when it was folded correctly

So under the steps he went

Under the steps was a box. Inside the box we found another part of the treasure map and some more clues

The sheet of paper below just had the letters without all circles in pencil

To figure out which letters to use we had to use one of the clues we found before

There were more clues in the bush in our front yard

One of them was this picture with holes in it

On the back was this weird mark. That’s when it dawned on us

We needed to use two of the other clues we got to find the message

Once we put the paper with letters on the back of the boat picture with holes… the swirly key told us what the correct alignment should look like

When we aligned the letters with the picture with the holes cut out using the key we found the location of the next set of clues

Eventually we found the full map

Still more clues

Working it out

My son was thrilled during the entire process

The scrap of paper said “The treasure is shining through the two swords” which meant placing the swords over the sun. Once we over-laid the key on top of the map

We found the location of the treasure!

Is was on the west side of the house. Here is my son digging up the treasure

Eventually I took over while he watched. This is how you react to treasure buried next to your house

One of my hobbies is planning treasure hunts. I planned this one for my children and it was a huge success
