This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to Maine with the CAP, Connecticut Association of Photographers.  Great weekend.

I would like to pass along a classroom connection for families.  Often in tourist areas, picture maps are give-a-ways in most stores and hotels.  Pick up a few extra, and spend time in the evening tracing your day’s route or map out the next day.  Let kids pick a destination and  use the map to direct the driver.

When you get home, cover a  map with contact paper, and you have an instant placemat for your child.  Great memory.  Great learning tool. Great way to start a collection.
