Transportation Quiet Play Mat

Recently, I made this "quiet play" mat for my friend's son's 2nd birthday.  I made the mat using the same technique that I used to make my kiddo's Halloween Felt Play Mat.  I wanted to make something that could be stored in a purse and/or diaper bag for use at a restaurant, church, doctor's office, etc.  Each vehicle has a matching "surface", but they can be used for any quiet pretend play that this little guy desires.  In addition, I included the letters of his name for a quick learning opportunity. 

If you'd like to make your own, here are the patterns I used for my vehicles (just click on the image, print, cut out on cardstock, and use as stencils).  Of course, you may be a much better artist than me and want to draw your own!
