I am amazed how the American society succeeds in creating a happy union between fun and educational, when it comes to kid-related activities. Where I came from, fun wasn’t part of the equation and learning was mainly reduced to an exercise of training your brain to memorize all sorts of data. It is in the States that I became familiar and embraced the learning through play concept. Take for instance toddlers and preschoolers who know the alphabet thanks to the ABC song. You may take it for granted as you grew up with this song, but for me this is brilliant. I know I wasn’t able to remember the alphabet at such an early age.
Coloring maps of America is another great example of a fun teaching tool that can be used by kids of all ages.
Use them as a classroom activity for students to learn about regional landmarks and what makes each state unique. If you homeshool your kids, any of these 3 coloring maps of America will be of great help for social studies as well as art. Make the most of them and have fun!

Travel all 50 states as you color and learn about each state and ocean. Printed on thick paper with non-toxic latex ink, this coloring map of America is made to handle crayons, markers, water paint or any other coloring media. Map created by Bee Colorful.
This map is different from the previous two in the sense that it comes as a coloring book and you can build the map yourself once you’re done coloring all the pages. There are 24 coloring pages that can be easily removed (no worries about ripping them off while trying to detach them). You can either use tape to put the map together or glue the pages on a big cardboard sheet. The final map is a bit smaller than the others but you’ll love the price of this coloring book.
