Embark on an exciting journey around the world with these engaging geography-themed crafts! Blending creativity and learning, these activities invite kids to explore continents, oceans, and maps in a hands-on, interactive way. From crafting salt dough maps to assembling continent collages and making paper plate globes, these projects inspire a deeper understanding of our planet's diverse features. Let's dive in and discover the wonders of geography together!
Salt Dough Map: Engage kids in geography by creating a tactile and interactive salt dough map! Prepare salt dough by mixing flour, salt, and water. Roll out the dough and shape it into the outline of a country, continent, or even the world map.
Continents Collage: Print or draw outlines of the continents and cut them out. Using various materials such as colored paper, fabric, or magazine cutouts, have kids fill in each continent's outline with materials representing its unique characteristics.
Paper Plate Globes: Create mini-globes using paper plates to introduce the concept of continents and oceans. Use a paper plate as the base and paint it blue for the oceans. Then, cut out and attach green paper continents onto the plate. Add small labels for continents and major oceans.
These crafts combine creativity and geography education, offering hands-on ways for kids to explore the world around them!
