The other week, while the kids were napping, I busted out a roll of butcher paper, markers, and a strong penchant for creating a super-activity-mat for the kids.
I knew it would need roads, a railway, airport and construction zone.
I also threw in some parking spots, a little lake for the animals to roam around, and greenery to fill the spaces.
Tayden loved it and straight away put his train on it. Then there were cars. Cars driving through the mud and on the railroad tracks! We had a few moments of panic, wondering if the cars would make it out of the way in time before the train came.
Happily there were no accidents to report, except the giant baby who thought it was funny to just run and stomp on it.
