Materials

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print out the map on heavyweight paper or secure to cardstock. Print out the flags and Dora templates on regular paper. You may might want to laminate it first for extra durability but it's not essential. Secure the map to the cardstock with push pins or tape the paper map securely onto a hard surface.

  2. Step 2

    Print out the Latin American flag templates. Again, you may wish to laminate these for long-term use. Follow instructions on the printable page to assemble the flags.

  3. Step 3

    Last, print out the stand-up Dora map and follow the simple instructions on that page. Then using tape or glue secure Dora to the spot on the map where indicated.

  4. Step 4

    Then travel the amazing world of Latin America with your child. Identify the countries, try to pronounce the name, stick the flags into each one and learn about the amazing cultures and histories of our great neighbors to the south. Note to parents: Be especially careful with the toothpicks around your children. Do not let them play with them or handle the sharp points. Buen viaje!
