Map it!

It’s been a while since we shared a “Creating at Home” idea and the time is right for this one!, Creating at Home idea 13 is making a Map Puzzle!
This is something to plan on now and assemble later, after a summer trip.

If you don’t have one yet, get your hands on one and take it with you when you travel. Take along a pen or fine tip to mark special spots you traveled to or silly stick figures to mark your spots throughout your travels. When your home the creating begins!

Collect empty cereal, cracker or pizza boxes to become a backing for your puzzle. Cut them into flat pieces.

Take your map an cut it into interesting shapes that will fit together like a puzzle. 

Use a glue stick or white glue and adhere the map to the flat sections of boxes and trim them to the puzzle shapes.

Now you have a personalized puzzle and fun memories of your trip.

To Finish and protect the puzzle you can cover it with clear packing tape (as pictured) or get your hands on some Mod Podge to seal it.

Your done! Enjoy.

Working on it…

We loved having a creative visit from Troop 65404 who came to CReATE to make something special for Mom while working on their Daisy Petal themed, “Caring and Kind”.

They were thoughful girls with a flair for pretty in pink. We just love these frames!

Happy Tuesday!
