As you probably already know, I have been making crafts for Kaboose.com for over four years now. I have a select handful of favorites, even though I’ve made over 500 for them to date! (wow, I still gasp when I think about that!) Usually I hold on to the projects for about a month, just in case there are any changes or new photo shoots needed, but after that I donate them to my kids’ elementary school. They display them in the office, library, and various other places in the school.
Some I keep for me, though. This globe is one of those keepers. I just love it. I love the way it came out, how it feels, and the comments I get when someone gets into my car for the first time. I have this globe hanging from my rear view mirror.
Here’s a close up, can you guess how I got the continents so textured?
This is a really fun project for kids, but it’s even fun for us adults ;) A great project for Earth Day!
I originally made this project for Kaboose, which was then bought out by Spoonful. Spoonful has since closed and the instructions were taken down. I am putting the instructions here until such time that Spoonful projects are redirected to a new home. At that time I will remove the instructions and link directly to the project on their site.
