Toddler Activities: Making Maps

Well, it's official.  I have a little Dora the Explorer fan.  Serenity loves everything to do with Dora, so we've started to incorporate some of her stories into our games and activities.  We spent one day making maps!  In every Dora episode the map comes on with his "catchy" tune, and shows three places Dora needs to go to get to her destination.  I asked Serenity where she needed to go, and she chose "Benny's Barn,"  "Bubble Bridge," and "Tallest Mountain."  I cut out foam shapes for her and she put them together to form pictures of the places she wanted to go, and then a little winding path to get there.  For a finishing touch, we rolled the map up and added a face just like Dora's map.  Now she loves to run around the house with her Backpack and Map pretending to be an exploradora =)
