I took my scissors to it and added a few springs!
My kiddos have been loving labeling the map features with the springs. I kid you not, the only thing I did was cut, laminate, and put the map labels on metal springs that I got at Home Depot.
Below is a close up of the springs!
You can grab a set by clicking the image below. I also use them to hold name tags on my kiddos desk's. Plus they work great for adding directions to centers and displaying diagrams!
