Family Map

ages 3-6


Map (U.S. or World), thumbtacks, optional: photos of family members

Activity Detail

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.

Since our family is not very geographically spread out, I might use the map to mark places we have visited. I could include a small picture of my son at that place.

I love how this activity gave my daughter a perspective on how relatively close or far away her family members live.

A good visual way to tie family to geography
