This was an easy playmat to make.
I just cut out a planets, aliens, a rocket ship and a UFO from felt and sewed them to the front half of an old men's t-shirt that was cut below the armpits. The back half was made into the Halloween playmat that I posted about last year.
Because the shirt already had stripes on it, I incorporated it into the mat and made it the tail of the shooting star.
astronaut for this mat too.
The mat is crooked because of the cut of the shirt but my kids don't mind one bit. This is a quick and easy toy to make and it is conventient to bring to other people's houses too, to keep your child entertained.
Here are some of my other playmats:
Pond Play Mat
Ocean Play Mat
India Play Mat
No-Sew Ocean Mat
Farm Play Mat
Dinosaur Play Mat
I'll be posting more including a Dr. Seuss themed no-sew play mat, a car play mat and more in the coming weeks.
