My kids played with cars and road mats for hours when they were little and they were always the most popular toys when I taught preschool, so I know these DIY play mats will go over BIG with the littles in your life. When it comes to gifts for kids I always like to balance that “fun” factor with not just giving them one more store-bought present and these heirloom-qualilty play mats do that nicely!
I found two great tutorials for you that require just simple sewing – one for a farm-themed play mat for toy tractors and farm equipment and the other a basic car mat for any matchbox-type cars. I love how one included storage for some cars and is portable.
