Princess Play Mat

Today I am sharing a project my sister made for my sweet niece Marley's 3rd birthday.  She has made play mats for each of her older three boys- a city, a zoo, and a farm.

Marley's is a Princess Play Mat.

My sister draws the outlines on muslin with pencil and then colors it in with Sharpies.  I love this project because it is so interactive and it can be packed up in a bag with a few select toys and taken to ballgames and parks really easily. 


Here are some of the fun activities Marley can have her princesses do:

1. Jump off the dock or go down the slide to swim in the moat.

2. Have a fancy dinner in the banquet hall.

3. Dance in the grand ballroom of the castle.

4. Take a nap or have a slumber party.

5. Paddle the rowboat around the moat.

6. Read a book or have a Bible study.

7. Arts and crafts time- painting and coloring!

8. Workout- lift some weights or do yoga.

9. Swing on a tree swing.

10. Swim and play in the pool.

11. Jump on the trampoline.

12. Ride a wild dragon.

13. Play hopscotch with their friends.

Doesn't she do such a good job! So fun!

Some details:

This is a fabulous idea!! I've seen something similar but they were carpets which had games like Snakes & Ladders printed on them.
Kids always seem to like to get down on the floor to play so this is a perfect choice!

I LOVE this! I used to love the idea of drawing a "doll" house on paper. This is like the next step up. What a fantastic idea. I hope it's alright if I pin it.:)

This is beautiful! I love it! I am in the process of making one for my boys to use their hot wheels cars on. I really like the embroidered edge. :-) Great job! I would love it if you shared this at my linky party "Fabulous Fridays" http://www.artistic31mama.com/2012/03/fabulous-fridays-3-linky-party-031612.html
Have a great weekend!!

Wow! Such a neat play mat. I love that it was all handmade and anything that uses Sharpies is a winner to me :)

Dona said...

That is really awesome. I bet she loves it!

This play mat is so awesome, even Marley's brother and his friends were playing with it, having the princesses ride the dragon or jump in the water. I'm sure it will get lots of play time.
