DIY Interactive Road Map

Buckle up! This craft is taking us for a ride. Before I drive you nuts with my road trip puns... let's load up the car with the supplies we need to make this fun interactive road map. 

Materials & Supplies 

Music for Crafting

No road trip would be complete without the perfect companion music! 

Song: On the Road Again
Artist: Willie Nelson

Step 1 Put Yourself on the Map

Print, cut and color in the road map template. Don't forget to color and cut your little car too! 

Step 2 On the Road

Roll the map into a cylinder, lining up the roads. Then tape together. I found it helpful to add a piece of tape to the back of the map first (see in full tutorial video below). 

Step 3 Get in Gear 

Cut a piece of transparent paper, about 2 inches wide and long enough to fit around your road map. Tape into a ring and tape your car to that ring. Then slide onto the paper cylinder. 

Beep! Beep! Let's hit the road.
