Nap Mats Galore
Many daycare centers, preschools and kindergarten programs require a rest-time for our little cherubs during their busy day, why not offer them a little slice of home comfort with a nice nap mat to cuddle up in!
While researching nap mats for my daughter's school I was introduced to this wonderful site www.craftybaby.com. The products on this website are great and I've ordered my daughter's (a "nap pack" in soothing purple) for September.
UPDATE! Just received mine in the mail and my daughter loves it! Lovingly made - perfect for Kindergarten.
From the website:
"Crafty Baby was founded in 1998 by a love of sewing and a need for practical & durable children and baby products. Jill, owner and creator, discovered during her pregnancy with her first child that there was a lack of unique, yet classic, fabric crafted items for young children in her local stores. As a longtime seamstress and crafter, Jill decided to do something about this dilemma, and Crafty Baby was "born." Jill credits her attention to detail and quality to her Nana K who first inspired within her a love of sewing at the early age of 4. Jill's designs are one-of-a-kind and crafted specifically to ensure durability against washing and active little ones. Fabrics are carefully selected for the highest level of quality and comfort. Crafty Baby has become a family affair, with Jill's children helping to pick out fabrics and field test products. Crafty Baby is a true, home-based, family company. We value our customers and are inspired by the children and families we meet and know."
