map making

Today I asked Finn (3 years) to paint me a map of our suburb. Paint didn't allow him to add much detail, so when the paint was dry, he worked into his map adding details (with a fine texta) such as our house, some favourite cafes, his family daycare, and some of his friends houses. 

You could also suggest children add trees, traffic lights, rivers, parks and shops. 

You could show children some real street maps of their street (or from google earth), so they can see their suburb from a different perspective and get an idea of distance between places.
