# Coloring Around the World

After posting the The Cost of Coloring in South America Project that I have had lying around for a while, I decided to re-create the activity for other parts of the world.

### I started with China.

Here is what my project looks like so far:

What do you think?

I will need to test it out before posting it as a resource.  If you would like to help me test it out, please let me know!

Here is what I need to do to finish the project:

• Find the cheapest possible map.
• Determine if all colors have to be used.
• Make a detailed “how to use this” page.
• TEST IT OUT!
•  The small provinces such as Beijing, and Tianjin could cause problems.  That is why I added a map and a list of all the provinces with pictures.

### Next, I moved to the British Isles.

With only 5 sections, it makes a simple directions page.  OR it could be used in elementary grades.  Anyways, here is what the project looks like so far:

It is safe to say that I am becoming obsessed with making puzzles.  My favorite part?

Testing the puzzles out for difficulty and SOLVING them! 🙂
