Choose Your Own Adventure...DIY Map Vision Board Project September 1, 2015 15:30

Making a map vision board is a great way to track past adventures and to help you dream and plan new ones!
It's quick and easy to make and a great conversation piece!  


Here's what to do:

  1. Purchase or re-purpose a magnetic white board and a World Map. You can also use a cork board with thumb tacks if you already have that on hand. Maps can usually be found at book or hardware stores or your local CAA/AAA etc.

  2. Mount your map to the board any way you like (tape, magnets or tacks depending on the board you choose to use).

  3. Use one color or style of magnet to track all the places you have been and a second color or style to track all the places you still dream of travelling to.

You can decorate your board any way you like. The only limit is your imagination!

To make my title, I bought letter stickers that have the image of a map on them. I had some little flower shaped sequins and glued them to pieces of magnet from the dollar store. To track all my adventures I used pink for the places I have been, and blue for the places I still want to go! If you have any of those flat promotional magnets that businesses often give away for free you could re-purpose them by cutting those into smaller pieces and gluing them to whatever you like.



I also had some clear glass stones leftover from another project so I glued a piece of a map that I found in a travel brochure onto the back and then glued on a piece of magnet. I used these larger magnets to secure my map to the board.

If you dream of travelling the World put it out into the Universe. You just never know what opportunities might present themselves when you clarify your goals, dreams and desires.

If money is holding you back consider looking into work exchange programs or volunteer opportunities. There are many farms all over the World that offer free room and board in exchange for help even for just a week at a time. There are also many opportunities for free places to stay in exchange for pet or house sitting. Some people even trade houses so they can vacation cheaply in other parts of the World. Whatever you do, don't stop dreaming...

Bon voyage!
