I found this printable map of the USA and wanted to make it for my boys to work on during the summer. Over the last year we had taken them to a few new states and they still talk about them so I thought this would be a fun way for them to see how far we flew and drove.
You can find your own printable version here.
I printed my map out on sticky label paper that was 8.5" X 11". Stuck it onto a large piece of cardboard and cut out each state with a razor blade. My hand was sure sore after that, but it was worth it. I love the look of the fun colors and the stitch lines that edge each state!
