I did the mat a bit differently than Mollie, mine is grey fleece with a cotton binding and small moon craters appliqued on with rainbow satin stitch. But really, the best part is the alien beanbags. With their crazy eye and bright colors, you can't resist playing with them.
Anna and I played beanbag toss (can you land on the mat? how about the big crater? how about the small crater?) but even more fun was just playing aliens. Alex wanted to get in on the fun too and we had a great time pretending to be aliens on all the different grey planets. Thanks to Mollie for such a fun project!
