Looking for a Children's map of Camino Frances

Camino(s) past & future
Frances, (2018)
We'll be walking CF in May, and I thought I would get a nice map for our grandchildren to follow along with us from home on the adventure. I need something with large print and enough detail for it to make sense (not a Spain map, or a Europe map, for instance). Anyone run across anything like this?

There's a basic map inside the front cover of the Michelin Camino de Santiago book ( the little green book that's very useful.)

I photographed this map and used it as a slide in a PowerPoint presentation I made.

You could photograph and enlarge the map for your grandchildren.

Have a look into this thread: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/hand-made-wall-map-to-follow-along.20340/
Dad drew the outlines of Spain's northern coast and of the Camino Frances on a ca. 3 meters x 1 meter paper roll. Then it was attached to a wall right above the ground in the living room. The six young children completed the map by drawing things and experiences which mum reported while being on the way. They also had a sticky figure for mum which they moved along the path. Sounds like a really good concept to me.

My suggestion as a retired Montessori teacher is to get the children the real thing, a map of Spain and Europe. No, the children likely will not understand it all. What you would be doing is planting seeds and providing a context. When my daughter was two she played with a beach ball globe and was able to locate places that we read about. Last year in her 20's she walked the Camino with me, a superb traveling companion!
HaroldS also has a wonderful idea!

@Patrick Neary the second image offerred by was on sale in Santiago etc at the end of October 2017. If you printed that image for your followers you might get individual copies for (some) of them on arrival.

Or buy two copies of the Michelin guide (# 160) - one to leave behind. This was my preferred guide to carry in a front pocket when walking. It has a stylised elevation profile and a selection of places to stay and detailed map for the suggested stages. This picks up on the suggestion by @Sparrow in Texas above.

Kia kaha (take care, be strong, get going)

The Forum store sells a Camino de Santiago wall map which gets good reviews. Check under Camino Francés items.
