The annual pirate treasure hunt

Every year we've gone to the beach we've discovered maps left by pirates.
Or rather, the children have. Somehow, the pirates seem to manage to bury their treasure nearby, and leave the maps where only our children will find them!
And the maps are drawn on sheets of what seems remarkably like parchment paper which has been baked in a medium oven for a while...

One year, probably soon, we'll not be able to do this. But for now, it's a lovely tradition.

Yours, in favour of traditions like this,

What a wonderful idea. I hope I can keep it in my head until we visit the beach again. Although, you know, I think perhaps pirates sometimes visit our local park ...
