Color The Earth
It may not be practical (or financially possible) to travel the world with a brood of kids in tow, but that doesn’t’ mean their geography lessons have to be relegated to the classroom. Kids learn about the rest of the world while having fun coloring continents and oceans a rainbow of colors on this inflatable globe. Once the masterpiece is completed, inflate the plastic ball to pull the top layer of jersey material taut. The ball will then be sturdy enough for all sorts of outdoor activities. Includes six permanent fabric markers in black, red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.
