Messy Monday #21 – Trains Week
For this week, I made a felt mat with the kids for trains and vehicles. I’ve been looking for a carpet of some sort that can be pulled out to play vehicles and trains on and decided that making one from felt would be cheaper and smaller/easier to store – and better yet, it’s custom! We went up to the local fabric/craft store and bought felt by the yard – all this felt was about $10.
Here’s the finished felt town.
Now it’s time to play. We set up the train track around the town and got out trains and animals for some creative play. This is about 2 seconds into the play time – it was a pretty “busy” town in about 2 minutes.
I’m linking this up to some fun parties – check them out!
