treasure bag


My boys have spent hours collecting treasures, but sadly they often end up smashed at the the bottom of the back pack or picnic basket, never to be cherished as they should.  With the loss rate being as high as it was, I decided it was time to do something about it!

The idea for this bag came from this book by Amanda Soule.  I love the idea of using mesh for treasure bags (especially beach treasures) so the sand and dirt is left behind where it belongs!

This little treasure bag is also a perfect mate for these scavenger hunt cards (great gift idea too).

And this bag happens to be for a cute little boy we know - Happy Hunting Isaac!


  1. I have to say thank you again for the best cowboy costume ever, that you wrongly sent me last year. it is sooooo cute, everyone loves it. :o)christina!

  2. I love this! The mesh is genius. I definitely need to whip some up soon!

  3. I love that you tied on the scavenger hunt cards. Good making Mama.

    I really like this idea. I bet it keeps the kiddos busy for long spurts of time hunting for the different items.I am big into making totes for kids! Ive made a bug hunting tote, and outting bags... and even a car mat bag! :)I would love for you to come link up this and any other boy craft to my What are little boys made of? Weekly Round-up. It happens every Thursday at seven thirty three - - - a creative blog
