A List Maker's Life: Spring Break Project?

Spring Break Project?

Gavin has shown quite an interest in maps lately. Inspired by his current IB unit at school, he wants to decorate his bedroom with a huge world map. We have been checking in at our favorite local second hand shops in hopes of finding a BIG map. So far we haven't found what we are looking for, but I promised him the search would continue next week when he is available to shop with me. Today though I did a quick Google search to see what I could find and up popped this amazing map inspired wall art tutorial. He will be pretty excited when he sees this idea and I think it looks a bit more finished than just hanging what I consider to be a classroom poster on his wall.

  3. This looks like a fun project that you can enjoy together. How satisfying to be able to recreate this, talk about the countries as you go and then have a map that Gavin is really proud of.

  5. One of the blogs I read (Nesting Place) linked to this blog with tons of map ideas. Thought it might provide additional inspiration!
