Kids are genuinely interested in the world around them. What better way to teach them about the world and encourage a sense of adventure, than by including maps within their rooms. Maps also provide inspiration for story telling time and a encourage imaginative play.
Whether you choose a small map, a giant map a table top globe or interactive map. There are lots of different ways to include maps within a child’s space to suit your taste or budget.
Maps make a great feature wall.
A large map or map wallpaper creates a really interesting focal point in the room. You can now find these in a whole variety of colours to suit the scheme you have in mind. They look great in babies rooms right through to teenage rooms.
Smaller maps and murals.
If an entire wall of maps is too much, you can opt for a print or smaller map mural. Placing these at the child’s eye level ensures that they are visible to inspire adventures and create discussion.
World map accessories.
There are many accessories that can be added to children’s rooms that show them the world, rather than adding maps to the walls.
World globes can bring endless fascination to a child, even if it’s just by spinning them and learning how the world goes round!
A world rug provides lovely detail to a room and is a great place to start imaginative adventures from.
Finally we have an interactive map such as the one below which encourages children to be actively involved in learning about the different countries and animals found across the world..
I think you have to agree that there are some lovely ways to educate children and inspire them about the world around them.
