Making a Children's Car Mat

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

Here's what we did last week. The kids wanted a play mat. And 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.
