Map (U.S. or World), thumbtacks, optional: photos of family members
Purchase a large United States or world map, and a box of colorful thumbtacks. Place the map where your child can easily see it -- either on the wall or on a bulletin board. Talk with your child about where all of your family members live, and place a thumbtack over those cities. You can also attach names and a small photo of the relatives under each thumbtack.
