Shower-time Education


A couple weekends ago Eric and I visited my brother David, and we were given quite the education. Just like almost every bachelor I know, David has a world map shower curtain.


Since I am the world's longest shower taker ever, I had quite the brush-up on my geography. I was almost embarrassed to admit how much I had learned, but on the car ride home Eric brought it up. "Did you realize Russia was so ginourmous??" "Half of these countries I have never even heard of!" We ended up talking about this world map for another 45 minutes, and then officially decided we needed one in our shower. Behind our pretty one! :)Obviously Public Education has done us well! Or maybe it was all the giggling I did in 7th grade geography that did me in....

I started looking around and found all sorts of shower curtains.


If I lived in New York, I could definitely use this map of the NYC Subway. I can barely find my way to the grocery store as it is.

They even have SAT words shower curtains.

And periodic table shower curtains.

What kind of education are you looking to get in the shower? :)


  1. Great idea! Love the NYC subway map one.

  2. Ahhh I think I would have to have Kreb's cycle on one...
    I'd love one of Africa so I could learn all the countries!

  3. you are so funny! i am inspired! maybe i need one of those too.

  4. If I buy the world map shower curtain for the kids' bathroom, do you think I can count it for homeschool Geography credit? :) Fun finding your blog tonight!

  5. I hate to break it to you, but while Russia is big, it's not nearly as big as that map makes it seem. It's maps like that that make Greenland look bigger than Brazil, when that's not the case at all.

    I think it'd be cool to have a shower curtain with two timelines side by side - the Bible and the rest of the world. I know a lot about each, but I don't know how they correspond (i.e. I don't know who was ruling Greece when Solomon was ruling Israel).

  6. This warms my heart:) I personally like the periodic table. When the MIA had their foot in the door exhibit someone made the periodic table of patron saints... They should have a shower curtain like that:p
