Maps. Great explorers set out on epic journeys to chart them, great scientists used them to prove revolutionary theories to be true, and great kids create them everyday.
Maps are how we make sense of the world we live in, but they are so much more than that. Which is why we love Make Map Art!
Huge atlases are filled with maps of many varieties, but what about the map of your hand? Or the map of your favorite neighborhood walk? Or the map of what is most important to you?
Set up kit style, Make Map Art is really a map workshop. A small booklet offers ideas and prompts, while a subsequent larger pad of paper filled with wonderful jumping off points offers opportunities to bring those ideas to life. Oh, and one great big map of the world is included as well, for when you're ready for a really epic adventure.
Going on a trip this summer? We can't think of a better activity to bring along on for all your little ones adventures, road trips, or simply a rainy afternoon inside.
Okay, what might be even better, is that with these backdrops and lovely prompts, you will not only have a great map, but a keepsake to frame. Because these maps are so much more than just a map, they're a work of art.
Which is why we think one of you lovely individuals should have a copy!
