Felt Pirate Map Play Map

This blog article was originally posted on my first blog In Our Pond.  I started out trying to put all my travel content on my homeschooling blog, but it grew to be too big.  So, I'm moving all the road trip stuff over here!  It'll probably take me a while to move all the posts, but I'll also be posting new content on here as well.  In Our Pond will now be exclusively for homeschooling and parenting content, while this blog (Party Through the USA) is for all the family travel posts.  Check them both out!

Arrrg!  It's a pirate's life for me!  For today's Travel Time Tuesday, I'm showing off my felt pirate map for small world play.  The map water sections were cut freehand, as were the other blobs of landscaping.  A felt letter sticker marks the spot of the treasure.

I had a lot of fun randomly marking out the path to the treasure and cutting out the "tear" marks on the edging.  The entire map is backed with a plain piece of tan felt, which is blanket-stitched to the map.  On one edge, I added a long piece of black ribbon for tying the map closed.

I plan on pairing the map with a "toob" of Safari Ltd pirates (found for 50% off at Jo-Ann Fabric).   We love Safari Toobs, so I know the kids will be excited about the new addition to their collection.
