Play Mat Tunnel
With two active little ones, I am constantly looking for new ways to invent for them to move their bodies without destroying our home, such as this box or our texture crawl. Once they started moving, our playmat quickly became a discarded object in the corner until I had this brainstorm one afternoon. This is another fun way to utilize a playmat once your kids are on the move.
Cover two sides with blankets to create a tunnel.
I sat on the opposite side to encourage my babies to crawl through. It was a short, non-intimidating tunnel so with only mild encouragement they ventured through. Place other exciting objects on the opposite side of the tunnel to encourage them to crawl back and forth. Play peekaboo around the sides.
Remove the blankets when you are done with playtime. This activity should definitely be supervised at all times.
* What else can you use to make a tunnel? Some chairs? A box?
