i made something similar for a friends two boys for Xmas. I used old sheets and sewed batting between the sheets. I painted the sheets with fabric paint and made several felt items, tree's, houses, pumpkins, etc., which I used fabric glue to secure. The maps had their home site and roads going to places they frequent, such as the beach, the lake, Xmas tree farm, Pumpkin farm, the mountains for their offroading, even their schools. They loved them, plus I sewed a pouch to the mat to store their cars. Mom loved it because it was washable and kept everything together. The boys loved it, because it was a toy they could take on vacation and play anywhere. Thanks for all your great ideas, they spark my creativity all the time.
