More maps

Sunnyboy has been interested in maps for a long time and enjoys looking at different types of maps and globes. Recently we've been making lots of homemade maps, including maps of our bedroom, maps of our house and maps of the route into town. This is the map we've been working on this weekend.

  8. Great idea! My six year old is obsessed with directions and maps, too. I think we should get some poster board and make a map of our neighborhood - you've inspired me! I'm a new follower on your blog today. Stop and say hello!

  9. Oh! And more cuteness... my son (3) is just starting to look at maps. I reckon making one of these of our local area (nursery, playgroup, park, shops...) would go down a treat! Fabulous!

  11. Very clever. We're going to be doing a unit study on geography this summer so I will keep this idea in mind. It's great for scissor practice too as I have preschoolers and they'll have fun picking out pictures and cutting them out!
