Make a collection of picture postcards of Idaho.


Make a collection of picture postcards of Idaho. If you know people who travel around Idaho, ask them to collect some from other parts of Idaho, and mail them to you. A gift shop should have postcards from your own part of Idaho. Once you have a collection of postcards, pin an Idaho Official Highway Map to the bulletin board. Arrange the postcards on the bulletin board around the map. Place colored pins on the map at the spots shown on the picture postcards. Then run a string or a ribbon from each postcard to the pin that locates it on the map.
