Shower Curtain Road Map

With the doldrums of winter settling in, Jude and I made this road map together.  (Originally pinned here.  They have an easy idea for making your road width the same on the entire map.)  
I bought a white shower curtain liner from the Dollar Store.  We spread it out on the basement floor and drew the road to our city (by no means an accurate representation.)  


Then we added some of our favorite places around town with a black sharpie marker.


The kids have slowly started coloring in some of their favorite places.  

I wish we were able to stop by the pool right about now!

And a famous race car has been making frequent visits all over town!




And even making pit stops in our driveway!


Total cost for cabin fever entertainment...........$1!

Linking with these parties.

  2. Awesome idea. I pinned it yesterday, and forgot to comment to thank you. I think I might just make this for my son for his birthday, he would love it! Although my drawing skills are lacking, but hopefully they will do.

  3. Gotta pin this one! What a great idea. :-) I like that you can personalize it to your own community and the places your own child knows and like to visit. So much better than a store bought car mat.
