mapping our community


We are making humble maps on the recycled grocery bags to explore our neighborhood and home. This invitation has invited story telling about favorite parks, best bike routes, where friends live, notable climbing trees and has even crossed into the terrain of the imagination with fanciful landscapes and characters who borrow your scooter to accompany you on adventures.


It has been incredible to learn about my children's connection to space and place through the maps they create. Blending their observation and recording skills in this visual format builds spacial awareness, but also invites amazing stories about our home and community.

Please make and share a map of your home or community. We would love to hear about it in

the comments! #mapmaking #home #community
