    Smile treasure hunt jar

    Jar (peanut butter jar will do)
    bird seed

    Fill the jar half full of bird seed. Add a screw, jingle bell,
    rubber band, piece of macaroni, button, needle, bead, paper clip
    penny, marble, pop tab, etc. Put 20 itemsin the jar. Fill with
    bird seed, leaving a space at the top for the bird seed to move
    around when shaking the jar. To prevent people from opening the
    lid, you can add some glue to the threads of the lid, then
    screw it onto the jar. Keep a list of the things you put into
    the jar, because it's almost guaranteed that the person you
    give the jar to will not find them all.

    Add the following poem:

    Some pirates got it all mixed up
    And did things wrong way 'round.
    They put the treasure in a bottle
    And buried the map in the ground!
    Their treasure was some silly stuff
    Like needles, screws, and beads.
    Then dear old Polly Parrot
    Added all her extra seeds!
    So find the twenty items here
    No two are quite the same.
    Don't open up the bottle though
    As that would break the game

    How creative....I never would have thought to do that. I bet the kids would like that too. Maybe they can make one for their Daddy.
