A Felted Earth . . . Holding the World in Your Hands!

It’s back to school time for a lot of kids around my area of the world.  So, I decided to make something for the occasion.  I’ve been homeschooling my children for about 7 years now; last year, my son was given the project to make a map of the world, and he did a fantastic job of it.  Following in his footsteps, I’ve decided to jump start the school year with a serious lesson in geography by creating a felted model of our little home-EARTH!

This was no easy task; and I’m pretty sure that the north-south axis is a little off.  If this felted planet was home to millions, they would be in big trouble.  I got lost in the deep blue of the ocean and my mind started to drift during those stages.  I honestly felt a little anxious, as if I was in the middle of an ocean.

As a model, I’ll be honest, every continent has lost a little shoreline and Asia is probably proportionally larger than it even is in real life.  And it’s a huge continent!  For a toy, I think that this felted Earth is just perfect.  Who doesn’t want to hold the world in their hands.  All of my kids did!
