First summer session of Nancy Drew Class
The Mystery of the Brass Bound Trunk.
A cruise ship, jewel thieves, a falling meteor and
Nancy is thrown overboard!
The girls painted wooden trunks from Hobby Lobby, added jewels (jewels were hidden in the trunk in the book) and then added their initials. In the book, Nancy is given a trunk with the initials "ND" but her real trunk is lost!
We also made Brass Bound Trunk Candy (recipe below) from the Nancy Drew Cookbook.
