I’ve loved map crafts ever since I was little – if you are obsessed with them too, you are going to love this collection of 20 project ideas.
I have an obsession with maps, and I know I’m not the only one out there. I think it started when I was in second grade and we had an art project where we made topographical maps using paint and oatmeal (don’t ask).
