A map of Dad

Surprise him with a homemade map that tracks his best-loved travels.

Completing this activity helps develop map skills and an interest in family history.

Mount a world map or a map of your city, state or country onto a bulletin board or a piece of tagboard. Or simply use the US and world maps on pages 2 and 3 of this printable.

Moms, you will need to help young children mark the map. For older kids, have your child "interview" Dad, writing the answers down. Then have your child look up the locations and mark the map.
