Recently I was browsing Pinterest and came across this neat project for children. It’s a little booklet that starts off with the smallest circle being My Home. Each page takes things one step further and a bit larger. The other pages are: My Street, My City, My State, My Country, My Continent, and ending with My World.
This project was a combined effort of both our children and myself. Our youngest who is only 4 years old placed most of the stickers throughout the book and drew the grass on the My Street page. Our son who is 6 drew the trees on the first two pages, drew the flag on the My Country page and colored the world. They both seemed to really enjoy deciding what should go on each page and selecting which stickers to use.
On the back of each page is a list of 3-5 facts about that page. Some of the pages were easier than others to come up with these facts. For the My State page I listed the state capital, state bird & flower and the state nicknames (Heart of Dixie or Cotton State for Alabama). To the left is the My Street page facts. Overall the project was fun for all of us and I plan to use it as a learning tool in the future. 🙂
