    So...I remember back when I saw this movie as a kid, I played out parts of the movie all the time. It totally sparked my imagination.

    We're having a movie night screening of the goonies on our outdoor movie theater, and what to give the kids something from the movie.
    Doing this on friday, so it needs to be something I can do quickly. I have a 3D printer, and could print gifts...

    I was thinking maybe a treasure map like in the movie?? But I was unable to find a somewhat close image to use. Obviously, it doesn't need to be screen accurate.

    Does anyone have any other ideas? Kids are a mix of boys and girls ages 4-8.

    3-D print the Copper Bones for them, and just go to a party store and buy pirate themed cups for drinks, and pirate banners, plates, etc. that will give you the look and feel. Then toss in Goonies elements here and there.

    That's a great idea. Grabbed the copper bones from Thingiverse. Again, it's for kids, they won't be able to tell if they are screen accurate or not.

    Does anyone have a pdf or the like of the map? Doesn't need to be perfect, just the basic shape etc. I'd like to include that as well.

    Eye Patch idea, AWESOME!!

    First run complete. Going to pick up some leather shoe lace material to tie the loop on it, I'll hit em with some filler primer, black paint, and some gold rub n' buff.
    Scaled them down a bit to fit 4 on my print bed, plus...kids. Didn't want them too big.

    Printed at .02 layer height with 20% infill in ABS.

    Triton, you need treasure! Fake pearls, plastic gems n stuff. Hit the dollar store or Michaels. :)

    perhaps you could purchase some brown butcher paper and cut some up in map sizes and burn the ends like an old map.... then have the kids draw fun maps or even have a little treasure hunt around your yard.

    That's an awesome idea! Trouble is, it'll be dark after the movie, and the parents are likely going to want to go home...but that's great.
    I also like the idea of the gems. I'll post what I end up doing.

    I do a treasure hunt for my little girl's birthday every year, with rhyming clues hidden in different places around the house and grounds, so that the group can run to each place and read the clue for the next location. Ends with a treasure chest filled with dividable goodies.

    Also, this is one of the items I just started including - gold foil "gold bar" boxes that you can fill with M&Ms or other piece candy. Great for bulk treats.

    Sorry for the delay boys. It was hectic trying to get all these gift bags done before last night. It was a huge success! Thanks again for all the ideas. Here's a pic!

    Thanks!

    Yeah...I ended up having about 48 hrs to get everything done. I used the map I linked above. Printed it on color laser 11x17. Aged it up with watercolors, then used a heat gun from the back to blow distress and fire damage into it.

    Copper bones didn't get much smoothing done. I just hit it with a high build primer ( didn't do much to remove the layering lines on it's own ) Light base coat of rustoleum copper,
    then an acrylic turquoise and wipe off, some dark brown wash for dirt, a black wash to enhance details, antique gold rub and buff to bring out pieces of copper, lastly a coat of matte clear coat.

    The eye patch is just cardboard, with two pieces of black adhesive backed felt, one on each side with the cardboard sandwiched in between. Cheap little half pearls from the craft store super glued on.

    Kids were totally stoked. Thanks for all the good ideas guys!
