We've been lucky enough to do heaps of traveling over the past month and a half. First, we took a road trip down south to the most amazing beaches. Then we took a trip North of Sydney to the mountains to see Thomas The Tank Engine. And now, K and I are embarking on a 24 hour solo journey from Sydney to Calgary! All this traveling has made for heaps of really super cool awesome busy bags!
Life has been too hectic for me to post them all for you but today I'm so excited to share his very favorite things from them: Felt play mats! This Christmas I made K a Bob The Builder (construction) playmat and a Thomas The Tank Engine (trains) play mat. Both were a huge hit under the Christmas tree and so far have occupied him during all of our traveling. It sure feels like we've taken them everywhere already!
Ok, enough chit chat. I'm sure your dying to see pictures right? Well as my son says, "TADAAAA!"
To make your own felt play mats all you need is a glue gun, scissors and an assortment of felt. That's it. Easy peasy right? It helps to have a rough drawing of what you want to do first. However, between you and me, I had drawn my designs on paper before I started but the end results were nothing like the original! That's just how I roll. Haha.
I had heaps of fun making them, they only cost a few dollars each and K LOVES them heaps too so definitely a success in my books. I'm thinking I'll try my hand at a few more in the near future so If you have any ideas for cool felt play mats I'd be keen on hearing them. Of course, if you make your own train or construction felt play mat based off my ideas I'd love to see those too.
Happy crafting & happy toddlers everyone! ;)
