Just picture it: the kids are playing independently and creatively (no batteries or screens involved) while you grab a cup of coffee, send a few emails, or just put the dishes away for goodness sake! Just imagine the calm and quiet... Even better: picture being able to take that creative calm with you for open-ended play in the car, in waiting rooms, at restaurants... Preschooler boredom and tantrums, goodbye!

Combined with my adorable felt sets, available separately ( https://www.etsy.com/shop/FlannelBoardFun?section_id=21859059 ), children always have something fun to do no matter where they are! (And I've tucked in lots of early learning benefits that they won't notice, and that you'll love!)

Little ones ~36 months to seven years (and up) can spread out and relax with this soft, portable Travel Mat at home on the floor, couch, bed, or a table; stay busy and engaged on the tray table of a plane or car seat; or wait things out the fun way in a doctor's office or restaurant!

This approximately 12" x 18" lightweight play mat is made of soft and beautiful wool-blend felt in a variety of vibrant colors. If you've heard of busy boards or busy bags, this fits right into those categories. This mat is the perfect surface on which preschool and kindergarten aged kids can play with their felt sets, with just enough stiffness for playtime, and just enough flexibility to easily close and carry. It features a kid-friendly elastic loop and button closure, a durable felt handle, and a removable felt envelope to hold felt story pieces. The envelope opens and closes with a small Velcro square, and is easily removed and replaced in the Travel Mat by using another Velcro square.

FlannelBoardFun Felt Sets and Travel Mats are child-tested and teacher-made and -approved. Each item you order is carefully prepared and packaged to arrive safely and quickly, so children can dig right in as soon as possible!

Colors of mats, envelopes, buttons, loops and handles will vary. If you have a color request, enter it in the personalization box and I'll do my best to fulfill your request.

Travel Mats can be used by children in the classroom as well. They are not intended for group Storytelling use by teachers or librarians, as they are flexible and work best on a flat surface or a lap!

"Fast shipping and wonderful customer service :) Will definitely purchase from this shop again!"
"Incredibly beautiful and well made. Perfect for my 5 year old and 2 year old! I highly recommend!!"
"Beautiful item and wonderful customer service. Will make future purchases."
"The pieces are cute, clever, and beautifully made."
"Definitely would purchase from this Etsy artist again."
I have used felt board sets in my preschool classrooms for many years. Children love handling these soft, colorful pieces and creating their own stories or reenacting stories, songs and poems they've been told. Teachers and librarians with a big stash of felt board pieces to use during group times can always grab and hold their audience's attention! Visual and Kinesthetic learners in particular benefit, but all children are affected in positive ways.

As children play with these pieces alone or with you, their imagination and story-telling skills are enhanced. Sorting by color, shape and/or type occur naturally. Vocabulary is increased. Fine motor skills develop. Fun happens!
These sets make great gifts for children (over the age of around 2 1/2), teachers of young children, and librarians. Also consider them for speech and occupational therapists, as well as for seniors in assisted care settings!
**Felt is not considered a choking hazard by the US CPSC, but supervision is required if children under 3 are using my sets.
