Make Your Own Kid's Car Mat. It's so easy and cheap!!

I've been MIA lately. Been playing with my kids!

Here's what we did last. The kids wanted a play mat. They aren't cheap, so we (mostly me, but that's okay) made our own!

We used; 
thick cotton fabric (approx 1m x 2m)
fabric paint
paintbrushes
a sketch outline on paper

AND we painted, we had fun and we did it our way .... even the four house numbers have a personal touch, being the birth dates of our family.

You can do it too. All you need is your imagination and a bit of time ... the paint doesn't dry straight away and you will have your little ones eager to play!

All up it cost about $30 and it has been used lots and lots already by all the members of our family.
