DIY Car Activity Mat
Want to know how I came up with creation? Well it’s pretty short story similar to my blogging style – LOL. I had an upcoming nanny gig for two 3 year old boys who loved cars. I wanted to add something fun to my nanny bag so I created the mat out of scrap felt and fabric. The crochet cars where created by my mother’s dear friend Geri. My mat is 24 by 36 inches but I would suggest making it 36 x 60 inch to allow for several children to play on the mat.
When I created my car activity mat, I didn’t really have a specific road map in mind so I winged it. Hence the reason for the limited lanes and direction options. Despite the lack of variety on the activity mat children love driving the cars on it while making loud car noises. The car activity mat has been helpful at nanny gigs in hotels and weddings. It is portable with an easy set up. You can find cars at the Dollar Tree. In the future I would love to make a race car or drag racing track.
