Determine your area where children may hide the treasure and set-up the "pirate ship" - can be any area you designate as such.
One child: Hider: hides the treasure
Other two or more children : pirates
The "pirates" close their eyes on their "pirate ship" while the hider hides the treasure. **Younger children may need a scarf to cover their eyes so they do not peek!
When the hider is done, they come back to the pirate ship and say "Arrr time to search for treasure!"
The pirates then run around looking for the treasure. Whoever finds it first wins! They become the hider next.
Play as many times as desired!
