Guys, this world map puzzle totally deserves its own post. We had so much fun putting it together!
One of my blog readers works for a website called foamtiles.com that makes all sorts of fun play mats, including the world map mentioned above, and she offered to send Quinn one for his playroom. Their mat are super cool and a perfect addition for any kid’s playroom, so we happily accepted.
Quinn was so excited when I told him who the play mat was for!
The world map mat is made up of 60 foam puzzle pieces. Each one is approximately 8″ X 8″, but they come partially assembled in much bigger squares, so, if you aren’t up for the challenge, it’s not difficult to put together.
I love that this play mat is both fun and safe to play on, but also educational and can help kids learn basic world geography.
Mal was especially excited about this since he teaches a geography class at school.
And he taught Quinn random facts as they built it together. He’s the best dad.
Even Murphy was excited about the mat and wanted to help us put it together/play/get in our way.
Each piece of the mat is made of durable foam which prevents liquids from penetrating the surface, so it’s easy to clean and maintain. If it gets dirty, you just wipe it down with a damp cloth and it’s good to go.
High-fives all around!
Once the mat was finished, Dada went into teacher mode pointing out all sorts of interesting things for Quinn.
And Quinn thought it was so cool!
The completed world map mat is 4′ X 6.5′, so it’s a good size play mat and an awesome addition to Quinn’s playroom. I know we’ll get a ton of use out of it in the coming years.
