Our Children's Map of the World.

This map has been hanging on our wall for close to a year. Hugh had wanted a map for Calder and he spotted this one at Costco a while back. I personally liked the plain map of the world with countries that was also at Costco, but having seen how much our kids use this version of the map, I definitely think Hugh hit this one out of the park. Similar one HERE.

As you can see there are all sorts of animals, buildings, and people on the map. They are all named and have started MANY conversations at our house around sharks, ships, churches, and even vampires! I would say Boone looks at this map on a daily basis. This feels like a pretty good estimation because I have to tell him to stop standing on that wicker basket on at least half of those occasions. Lawson is playing with her snot here. Please ignore. 
 
Calder has used the map to find Syria when we were talking about refugees, locate China and Ireland when classmates took trips there, and even estimated the distance from Calgary to Saskatoon when we drove there this spring for hockey. 

Lawson has even enjoyed the map. . . She pulls at the corners and even substituted the fun tack for a stick of gum and got some serious chewing in. 

I advise you to keep your eye open for this at Costco or skip the waiting and order one from Amazon. It is great.

Happy Monday!

  1. This is brilliant Jordan. I love that it has buildings and animals that are significant to each part of the world. The girls really enjoy looking at the world globe at our house but this is even better. I just went and ordered one from Amazon. Thanks for the tip.
