I have a thing for maps. I love the memories seeing maps of places I have been and lived. It brings back all of the memories of that place. This Valentine's Day, I wanted to incorporate all of the places that have been so special to our family over the years. I created this fun chalkboard with all of the places that have special meaning to our family.
You will need:
- Access to Google Maps
- A Printer
- A Heart Template
- Chalk Markers
- double sided tape
After the hearts are laminated, cut them out again. Tape the hearts to your chalkboard in whatever pattern you desire. Then using a chalk marker, add why that map is significant to you next to it. I highly recommend a chalk marker instead of just chalk because they give a cleaner finish than normal pieces of chalk do.
For our family I used maps of where we met, where we were married, where we lived when we were newlyweds, where we became a family of three and where we became a family of four. Some other map ideas include favorite trips you have taken, where you got engaged, where each of you are from and any other place that holds significance if your life.
