Clicking on this leads to a whole bunch of crafts to do with maps. Very creative stuff. At the end of the blog are names of other folks who've done some creative things with maps, and all the names are links. Very inspiring.
One of my favorite things to do when I was little was pull out my parents' National Geographic atlas and pore over it while lying on the floor of the living room. Maps contain so much possibility: looking at one, seeing the outlines of unfamiliar coastlines and learning the names of strange rivers, is almost like being transported to another world. So it seems a shame to throw out old maps when they become obsolete — why not give them new life in your home instead?
