I had found unfinished small boxes in the shape of a treasure chest at the craft store for about $1-$2.
I thought they’d be perfect child sized treasure boxes and they’d be wonderful filled with colorful treasures.
Since they were unfinished, I let the girls paint them with water-based acrylic craft paints. When they were dry, we filled them with treasures: colorful flat marbles that look like gems, fake gems in different shapes, acorns, polished stones, a gold coin, and of course, fairies and pirates (both from Playmobil).

This would make a great Easter gift for the fairy or pirate fan in your home.
