Y’all are going to love this DIY farm play mat. If you are looking for a simple gift to give to your kids, this is the project for you! If y’all can believe it, my grandson will soon be one! Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday I was hosting a baby shower and now I am making gifts for a soon to be toddler. He loves tractors and pushing them around on the floor so I thought why not try to make a DIY farm play mat. I found a few things online that made this project super simple and then thought I would share the whole thing here.
