Reposting a popular homeschool idea…
One issue homeschoolers run into at times is where to keep maps. Many programs really require access to a world and US map. Some homeschoolers are blessed with enough space to have a dedicated homeschool room. For those of us that do school at the dining room table, the living room couch or where ever we land – where do we display a map?
My oldest daughter suggested gluing a map to the underside of a clear tablecloth. Sounded like a good idea to me! Turns out it was the easiest project ever. We now have a sturdy plastic tablecloth to protect the table as well as easy access to a world map as well as a US map.
I purchased a large clear table protector, a World & US wall map set and clear Elmer’s glue.
Glue like crazy on the map side, then carefully flip it over so the map side is down. I used my rolling pin to flatten out the map to the plastic.
A tablecloth map. Or map tablecloth? Either way for about $10 I have a super useful and easy to store homeschool tool!
