House Plan Play Mat

We made a new Play Mat! This one is a house plan (for a very small one-bedroom house).


As usual, we made this using butcher paper and our trusty IKEA desk protector alongside my miserable art skills and some scribbled help from the kids…

I planned for them to use this mat with Play-Doh (I was planning to make furniture), but Emma wanted to use her little doll instead, so Johnny used Play-Doh and Emma used her doll. This arrangement worked surprisingly well!

  1. I have GOT to figure out a way to get one of those desk protectors. The range of uses you put yours through is inspiring. :)
