I am so excited to have completed this next project!
I made a Coconut Tree Floor Mat!!!
Making Learning Fun - a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom floor mat!
I followed the directions from Making Learning Fun, except that I added an additional plastic piece on the top for protection. I think that my Kinders will mess too much with the tape if they can access it! However if you do not want to add the top piece that is okay.
You will need a 1 or 2 plastic pieces that each measure 52 inches by 40 inches. The large roll was 52 inches wide, so I picked up 2 1/2 yards, to make front and back. You will only need 1 1/4 yards if you are doing just one piece of plastic.
This plastic smells toxic when you first buy it. :( But the odor mellows out in time. You also need brown, green, and pink duct tape.
1. Cut 1 or 2 pieces of plastic, each 52 inches by 40 inches, depending on the version that you are making. One piece will be the bottom (you add tape to this one) and the other plastic piece will cover the taped piece. I left the paper backing on while I worked on this project. Be sure to tape right to the plastic.
7. Then I flipped the template to create the leaf on the right side, slid it under the plastic again, and added the green tape. Oh, and that's one of my helpers, Bootsie!!!
**If you are not adding the top plastic piece, just add the pink tape to each edge.**
11. Place on the floor and add some large plastic letters. I picked these magnetic letters at Lakeshore.
I really LOVE this!!!
I have only 2 more blocks to finish, but I am waiting for the templates to arrive from Amazon. They are called Drunkard's Path!!! LOL!!!
Since school is starting, I'm not sure when I will get to those blocks. :(
