Map craft for children

Kids have all sorts of creative ideas that are just waiting for the opportunity to be expressed. Give your child the chance to explore textures, colors and shapes through fun arts and crafts for kids. Each of the simple activities for kids has a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, and a list of skills it develops, making it easy for you to select and facilitate projects. They're fun for families, so pick crafts for kids that you can do together.


  • Large sheet of paper
  • Pens or markers
  • Glue
  • Paints and paintbrushes
  • Sturdy cardboard or wood, and milk cartons or small boxes (optional)


  • Paint and decorate milk cartons or small boxes and glue them onto the map to make buildings.
  • Instead of a city map, draw a map of your yard, your house or your child's bedroom.
  • On a very large sheet of paper, draw an imaginary city map big enough for your child’s toy cars and trucks..
  • Include familiar places like the bank, grocery store, gas station, park, school, church, post office, and so on.
  • Let him color and decorate the city.
  • Tape the finished city map to the floor so your child can travel around the city with his cars, trucks, dolls, and fire engines.
