Begin with the blue. Use a glue stick to makes sections of the ocean sticky, then place the blue squares onto the glue. Overlap the edges and leave a space between each square. When finished with the oceans, start gluing on the green land, you can mix in some brown as well into the land masses. Lastly, cover the top section with white squares and add a few white squares around the earth for clouds.
