The naughty mat :o(

A wonderful lady I know is going back to teaching pre-primary after 8 1/2 months off for Maternity leave with her beautiful baby girl and wanted to know where we got our naught mat from as she needed to set up her brand new classroom.

Our naught mat came from IKEA


but as there wasn’t enough time for a trip up north to the IKEA store I said I would make one for her.

The naughty mat of course has to be red, not sure why I always think this but I am guessing it has to do with traffic lights, red = stop and I thought since it was for pre-primary students I would make it a little cute so this is what I came up with….


I have backed it with denim to keep it solid and as it is going on vinyl flooring I have padded it just a little (don't want the naughty little people getting too comfy)

Michael liked it so much he has asked if we can have a naughty mat just like Aunty Marteenas classroom. I am not sure I am going to make him one, I don’t want him to enjoy it when I put him there :oS


  1. heheh love this Helen - very creative!

  2. Here' hoping it won't get much use for Miss Marteena. Good Job.
