Personalised Picture Car Mat

My friends cute little blonde headed, blue eyed boy was about to turn two. He is precious and I was trying to think about what to get him for his birthday. I remembered an idea I had seen online once that I thought I would love to make for Ewan, if he had been even a little bit interested in cars. A Personalized Picture Play Mat (you can find the tutorial here).


But alas Ewan is more of a lego and tools type guy and he has no interest at all in playing with cars. However, my friends little guy loves pushing things around and loves to go visiting his friends and I thought this could be a good gift for him.


It had nine little “house’s” with a window to put in a picture of one of his friends or family.


Three of the roads went right off the edge of the mat, to allow him to “go” to other places.


I backed it with a nice bright fleece material and paired it with some toy cars.


Mission accomplished. One present for a cute two year old boy complete.
