Step 6: Hanging Your Picture

When you make this map, you might not already have all 50 State quarters yet, but this is an easy way to see which quarters you already have and which ones you still need to collect!

As you collect quarters and fill your map, you might want to just leave the map on a table or against a wall.  But you can also easily hang the picture on a wall. All that's required is a piece of string: on each side of the picture about 1/3 of the way down from the top, just punch a small hole near the left and right side of the picture, run a single piece of string through both holes and tie them to the picture.  Put a picture hangar in the wall where you want to hang the map, and you're done! If you don't want to punch holes in the map, you could just tape a piece of string to the back (but as you get closer to collecting all the quarters, the picture might become too heavy to be supported by just taped string).

BONUS IDEA: Each State quarter has its own unique information:

  • State Name
  • Year the State joined the USA
  • Year the quarter was minted
  • Picture and Motto (on the back of the quarter)

If you want to go further, you can also print one of these blank tables and for each quarter, fill in its information when you get the quarter. Example:

State Year Joined the USA Year Quarter Minted

State Motto

Alabama
1819
2003
Helen Keller Spirit of Courage

Follow this link for a blank table you can print, and fill in the quarters information as you go. If you would like more spacious version of the table (25 states on 1 page instead of 50), you can view and print these two tables instead: page 1; page2.
