There’s a “fifth week” of blogging this month. We know, it’s technically a week spanning over April and May. We’re seizing the opportunity to declare this a WEEK OF GEO-FUN!!! Every link this week will feature something fun and unexpected, relating to geography somehow. Check back every day!

Today, let’s make something fun! Thanks Design*Sponge for the link to this great project tutorial!

“A recent house clean-out yielded many items we had a hard time parting with, even though their very existence has become obsolete in the last few years. One of the most noticeable of the bunch: road maps. As our ever-advancing phones and computers take over our lives, we find what was once useful is now trash, yet we couldn’t part with these beautiful maps! They reminded us of our childhood road trips and later travels throughout Europe.

This month, we turned our junk into art and created these recycled cork board maps. We thought it would be an amazing project for a kids’ room to re-create the entire US using a road atlas. We didn’t get that far, but here is the beginning. ” – bbbcraft sisters
