When I saw Crystal's tutorial for a travel coloring mat made with the Color Me Fabric, I just knew I had to make one for my 3 year old. Her tutorial was is very nicely written and is very easy to follow.
Nora loves coloring, so this is the perfect, since I can let her color it and then throw it in the wash and it's ready for coloring again. This has been Nora's favorite Christmas gift
I pre-washed all of my fabrics so there would be no shrinking when washing. The Ultra Washable Crayola markers work great and come out in the wash. I wash the mat on a cold cycle and let it air dry. (Note: sometime the orange and red don't always come out completely this is why I air dry, so I don't set the colors.)
It has been quite fun watching Nora color and seeing her coloring improve each time I wash her mat. I should probably make another one so I have a spare in my bag at all times.
