- An overhead projector [or a project that connects to a PC/ laptop – borrow one from school or from work]
- An image of the world
- Plastic Wrap
- Permanent marker
- Paint [use magnetic paint to make the mural interactive]
- Paint Brushes
- 2 hours of kids-hands-off drying time (easier said than done)
To make the mural I printed off a picture of the world [or find one for your PC, if you have a project that connects to a PC]. Then I put the plastic wrap over the picture and traced the world with my marker. This meant that I didn’t have to buy transparency paper – I’m a tightwad. Project your image onto the wall and fill it in. This is super easy!
This is what our kitchen area looked like when we moved in and you can see the progression of the mural to completion. I like my new kitchen!!!
Where did we get our inspiration?

This DIY World Map Mural would of course look FABULOUS in a class room too! Why not have a go? I am dying to…
