Hello friends! Today I am going to show you how to make a scratch map for travellers.
The materials we need are:
- 1 A3 World Map
- Transparent auto-adhesive paper (contact paper)
- 1 Birthday candle
- Acrylic paint
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Map
The first thing we are going to do is download and print the map...
Step 2: The Contact Paper
Then we will paste the transparent contact paper on the map ensuring that there are no air bubbles (we can help with a ruler)
Step 3: The Birthday Candle
Then we will pass the candle over the whole continental part of the map
Step 4: Let´s Paint!
Then proceed to mix 2 parts of acrylic paint (the color is optional) with a part of dishwasher on all the countries, avoiding to paint the white outline between them. Then let dry to apply another coat of paint later.
Step 5: Scratch Your Map!
Our scratch map is ready!! Just get a coin to scratch the countries we have visited! And if you do not like traveling this can be an amazing gift for your traveling friends! I hope you liked it!
If they wish they can add a pin with notes or photos with the best memories of each country!
Thank you for your vote! :)
