Winter Play Mat


When we were snowed in here
on the east coast over winter break,
the girls and I needed
some good warm indoor fun.



The Winter Box from last year
was too messy with the rice
and was losing it's mystique.

I wanted a way for the girls
to explore the "snow"
without making a mess.


So... I made this little
winter play mat
with:
some organic cotton
quilt batting
as the frozen tundra,

a scrap of
iridescent fabric
from my stash for the frozen pond,

and a white felt igloo.


The elves, penguins,
and arctic critters
have been playing very
nicely together.


It has also been a lovely
wintery addition
to Fairy Land!


Let it snow,
Let it snow,
Let it snow!
