Bronte Mettlestone Family Book Club: Make a Treasure Chest of Memories Part 02

Bronte Mettlestone Family Book Club: Make a Treasure Chest of Memories Part 02

The treasure chest turned out to be very small, the size of a large shoe box. For a moment, I thought it shimmered with jewels, but those were only glued-on sequins.

Once you’ve completed the first step in our Bronte Mettlestone Family Book Club activity and filled out the Memories to Give activity page (check this blog post for more info)

It’s time for you to craft your treasure chest! We took our inspiration directly from Bronte’s description aboce - a shoe box with glued-on sequins!

This part of the activity is a great opportunity to use your imagination! Some supplies you might consider:

  • a shoebox

  • newspaper and watered-down PVA glue for papermache

  • paint

  • felt (to line your treasure chest!)

  • sequins or glitter

Let your imagination run wild and most importantly, have fun! This would be a great collaborative project for your family, or (if you are a shoebox hoarder like me) each member of your family could make their own personal treasure chest!
