World’s Greatest Smile World Map

During the last years we talked with a lot of children about the World’s Greatest Smile, it’s aims and the future. And besides the deeper meaning of this project one of the most popular thing we gave them was a copy of the World’s Greatest Smile World Map. They just loved it and were very interested about the names and all kind of information about the different countries.
That’s why we put one online now.

You can - together with your children:

  • crayon in the countries
  • fill in the colours of the flags
  • paint local animals
  • add the names of the countries and continents
  • colour language groups
  • paint local places of interest or glue on pictures from travel catalogues
  • colour the international organisation participation
  • Imagine how people live in different countries and why there are distinctions.
  • Let your imagination run away with you!
  • Have fun!
