Decorating with Maps

I love maps.  Geography was always one of my favorite subjects.  It is just so fun to learn about other places and cultures and dream of traveling there someday.  Maps and globes are popping up all over the decorating world right now, so they are easy to find and a fun way to get your kids interested in learning more about the world! I thought it would be fun to use a map in our office decor, so we ordered a giant National Geographic map from amazon to place in our office.  To make it look like a piece of art, we added some crown molding and created a frame around it on the wall. 

We also have a couple maps on our collage wall in our family room.  I printed a map of the United States and placed it in on a cork board so we can stick pins in the places we have visited. 

Some fun places to find maps:
Mod Cloth
Free Map Collage
America Subway Art Map
And speaking of maps, we just purchased a fun leap frog puzzle map that my son loves.  A fun way to get them learning more about the US and World.
