Now that the warm weather is here to stay, our family spends most of our free time lounging by the lake and enjoying the summer breeze. Noah, my youngest son, is two years old now and enjoys scribbling on pads of paper ( or anything else, unfortunately) and flipping through books. I like to have lots of activities lined up for him to keep him busy so he doesn’t get frustrated – if you have a two year old, you know what I’m talking about.
Since towels always seem to get bunched up and never give up on flying away with each gust of wind, I made this mat with grommets so it can be easily secured to the ground using stakes. Follow these easy steps to make the ultimate summer activity mat for your little one!
