If only there were a better phrase to describe this than "play mat", because look at it! It's so much more than a regular old lie on your belly and do nothing mat. This is a satin edged, texture stitched, animals attached with ribbons, velcro tabbed interchangeable toys, colored beads under vinyl tummy time nirvana. That's what we'd call it.
Of course we're not surprised that the creator of this not just a play mat is the immensely talented Cheri Heaton of I Am Momma Hear Me Roar. She incorporated so many interesting textures and elements, and yet the overall effect doesn't come off as overstimulating. She even put little gripper pads on the bottom so it won't slide around on hardwood floors! Check out the full tutorial and be sure to read Cheri's Big Blog Family interview, too!
