dc wants a treasure hunt.
I plan to mix up plaster of paris/sand/straw and hide treasure(s) in there for a bunch of 8yo to chisel out.
dh has just cleared out stash of kinder egg capsules...
what else can I use?

needs to be water resistant and be able to withstand chiseling.

or do I just have to eat 10 eggs?

Try somewhere like wilko for storage containers

I'd go with eating the eggs smile

You can get screw top medicine pots on eBay which would probably work well. I use them for Geocaching.

oh, those 'piss pots' look like they could be a good size.

That one appears to be a 20ml sized pot.

If you type 20ml pot into eBay, you get several different options.

thanks for the inspiration. I found 50ml dressing containers in a pound shop.
