WFMW - Geography Lessons
We've always had a world map/globe in our kitchen next to the dinner table. When the kids were younger we would play the game "I'm think of a country" and we would have 5 questions to ask to guess the country. A few years ago nail polish remover was spilled on the table. I thought of stripping it, painting it and then another idea came to me - decoupage the map on the table! I cut the map up and glued it on the table with modge podge. It was still a little bare so around the edge I added paper money from countries around the world. I collected stamps when I was younger, so I added those too. And as a finishing touch I scoured through our own photos and some National Geographic magazines and added pictures. After 4-5 coast of polyeurythane the table is good to go and we still enjoy playing I'm think of a country.
