Ok so your kids love to colour in, but how about the concept of colouring in over and over again? It still amazes me the products I stumble across and the amazing people creating these products! The Colour Thrown Down mat / picnic rug provides hours of entertainment and once it's finished (this will take a while) it can be washed and re-used!!!
I have loved watching my kids and their friends 'share' out the responsibilities of colouring from:
- colouring different quadrants
- colouring a particular drawing e.g. all the bones
- using a specific colour
- 'in-charge' of colouring a certain shape
There has been many conversations counting the number of skulls, pineapples, flowers and clouds etc - which in turn fills in time for the kids, whilst having fun and learning at the same time! We have used the mat inside many times but have also taken on a picnic, so no need to take colouring books to keep the kids entertained - it's an all in one picnic rug and entertainment station!!
Mr 6 Review - The best thing is that you can draw on it and wash it off and can draw on it again and again and again.
Mr 4 Review - You can eat off it and wash it off again
The Colour Thrown Down mat itself is very sturdy, thick and large (1.3m x 1.3 approx.) After a beautiful creation has been made, it really is as simple of throwing the Colour Mat in the washing machine and hanging out to dry - My kids might be a bit sad to see this blank again but also excited to start on a new design!
The Colour Throw Mat comes with a packet of water-based washable textas and the best part is it has a large pocket with velcro to keep the textas in, so no losing the textas or using the wrong type of textas. So remember to only buy replacement water based and washable markers.
My friend recently observed her son using the Colour Throw Mat and after watching him and listening to his comments she just had to purchase one! Thanks Mum followers are been offered a 15% discount by simply using discount code thanksmum at throwdownoriginal.com The RRP is $159.
