Animal habitat playmat


  • Butcher paper
  • Crayons
  • Clear plastic desk protector

Draw a grassy area, a path, and some water (the black things are my pathetic attempts at drawing rocks)


Add toy animals (we used Little People animals, because that’s what we have) and play away.20090116_0115

I was especially pleased to see that this activity kept Johnny happily occupied for a solid half hour – that’s a rare occurrence in our house!

You could make something similar using a large sheet of cardboard, but I like the sleekness of the desk protector, and the fact that butcher paper is so easy to color on.
