the painted globe

Pin It
i found this gLoBE at target awhile back and immediately liked it. 

but i didn't like its $24.99 price tag.  good things come to those who wait, though... a few  months later, i found it on an end cap with some cLeaRaNCe items.

you know that i bought it at that price!!!

although it's not used for educational purposes, we've used it several to look at where other cities or countries in relation to where we live.  one day i looked at it and the stark black and white-ness, looked so bad to me.  so i decided to paint it. 

Bear is even more excited to use it now!  right now, we are participating in a postcard exchange through Teach Preschool{more info in our Homemade Postcard post}  i also solicted help from all of my friends on facebook to send us postcards too. the next mail project we will be participating in is a sticker exchange!  so excited!

everytime we get mail, we put a sticker on our United States or World map. 

so far we have received mail from
6 countries, 18 states, and 27 cities!
