A Posh Play Mat ($98.00) is the perfect place for your little one to play. These are a must have for any new mom or any mom of a young toddler. However play mats are not just for little ones. They are something that you can continue to use long after your little one has gotten bigger. I thought that I would share my 10 ten ways to enjoy the Posh Play Mat after your child has grown into an older toddler.
Ten Ways to Use Post Play Mats with Older Children
1 — At Games
When we go to watch my oldest play soccer, the kids like to sit somewhere. It would be a lot of work to take chairs for everyone. However the Posh Play Mat is easy to carry with us and they can comfortably sit on it. Plus when there is dew on the ground or the conditions are less than favorable we can still sit on it to keep from getting dirty.
2 — As a Picnic Blanket
My kids love having picnics. I love having a nice place to sit so that we do not get dirt on our food. The Posh Play Mat makes the perfect picnic blanket.
3 — At the Park
We go to the park a lot. With four kids it seems that I am always running after one of them and that one of them is always in need of something. While we are resting at the park or taking a break from play time, the Posh Play Mat makes the perfect place to sit down.
4 — When Traveling
When traveling the Posh Play Mat really comes in handy. We stop a lot with the kids to make travels more enjoyable. It is the perfect place to sit and watch them run and play or to enjoy lunch where they can stretch. It is definitely something that we will not be traveling without anytime soon.
5 — At the Pool
I have been known to use the Posh Play Mat at the pool a time or two. It seems like the chairs are always so hard to come by and we all need a place to sit and rest some. So this works out as the perfect place for us to sit and take a break.
6 — On Hardwood Floors
We have hardwood floors in all of the rooms of our home but one. We have been talking about setting up a second TV area for the kids but do not like the idea of them hanging out on the hardwood floors and I can not find a rug that is right for the area. Thanks to the Posh Play Mat, we have a great place for them to sit and enjoy watching some TV or playing games together.
7 — When Camping
While we are camping there is always a need for the Posh Play Mat. It works perfect to throw a few toys down for the kids to enjoy and it also works great for feeding them meals or anything else. It is actually something that I wish that we had this summer when we were doing our extensive camping.
8 — At Festivals
We go to a lot of festivals with the kids. When watching shows or performers, the kids like to sit down. They also like to sit down and do crafts or play games. The Posh Play Mat is the perfect place for us to sit with the kids for all of these purposes.
9 — At Concerts
When we go to concerts with the kids we usually sit in lawn seats. This means that the kids are technically sitting on the ground. Well instead of that I carry the Posh Play Mat with us for them to sit down.
10 — At Fairs
Finally we also go to a lot of fairs. We watch livestock, see the shows, and do a number of other things together. It never seems like we can find a place to sit and relax. I am eager for this year’s fair season and to be able to take the Posh Play Mat along with us.
Please excuse the stock photos as ours of the Posh Play Mat did not turn out as I had hoped.
