I just had an idea for xmas gifts for my twin 6 year old boys. They love keys, secrets, intrigue. So I am thinking of getting locked boxes and putting stuff inside, like treasure, or a treasure map, or magic wands or potions. Any ideas on finding locked boxes? Locked wooden boxes? I will probably buy those but make stuff to put inside. Ideas are welcome!

How about checking some craft stores? Here's a couple that I found:

Here's some ideas for making your own puzzle box:

Hope these can at least get you started.
