How to Make a Globe

When Liam brought his papier-mâché globe home from school I was thrilled for many reasons. First it was one of the coolest kindergarten projects ever — his class had literally spent months making their globes working a little each day as they learned about all the oceans, continents, etc. Secondly, Bettijo and I had just been asked to plan an Earth Day party photo shoot for, and I was totally inspired by Liam’s globe project.

As the centerpiece for our BLOOM & GROW Earth Day party I ended up creating a slightly larger version of Liam’s globe and used a punching ball rather than normal balloon to achieve more of a sphere shape.

P.S. If Liam’s overwhelming affection towards his handmade World is any indication, this is a project your kids will ADORE!
