Decorating with Maps

Over the past few weeks I have run into quite a few photos of rooms decorated with maps. (The image above is from Deco Peques). Some of the rooms are modern interpretations while others are more traditional. Either way, this is an easy way to inspire your child to learn about the world and can also help teach them how to read a map. I hope the images inspire you to bring maps into your life.
