Preschool Nap Mat
With a little creativity, unused nap mats can be repurposed to provide extra padding, comfort or keep areas clean and safe. If your kids are no longer taking naps or your run a daycare and have unused nap mats, consider some creative alternate uses for your children’s nap mat rather than throwing it away. Nap mats come in a variety of materials and thickness. The most reusable nap mats are made of sturdy vinyl.

  1. Use as a bench - A folded up vinyl preschool nap matcan be used as a reading bench for kids. The extra layers of the fold provide a comfortable sitting place that is the right height for small children.

  1. Diaper changing pad - A folding nap mat can be easily stored in other rooms of your house and taken out to be used as a diaper changing pad anywhere there is floor space.

  1. Build a fort - Use a few daycare nap mats to create a fort that offers unlimited adventures with a big imagination.

  1. A play area for messy play with paint or playdough - Nap mats provide a soft place to sit while playing and vinyl nap mats are easy to clean from messy arts and crafts. If playtime is going to be very messy, consider protecting kids clothing with a KinderSmock.

  1. Slide Cushion - Place the nap mat at the bottom of an indoor slide for extra cushion on the land.

  1. A seat or bleacher cushion - Now that the children are a little older and playing sports, take their old preschool nap matalong and use it as a seat cushion on the grass on on a bleach. You will be thankful for the extra padding in overtime.

  1. Beach mat - The padding of a nap mat provides extra comfort laying out on the beach and is easy to wash off the sand when you are done

  1. Sleeping bag pads for camping - Place the nap mat inside the lining of your sleeping bag.

  1. Create a pet bed or use to pad a pet crate - Pets love some extra cushion when they lie down too. Use your nap mat as a pet crate liner or create your own pet bed. A soft nap mat sheetcan help make this creative pet bed more inviting.

  1. Line the bottom of a wall for padding in playrooms - Protect your playroom walls and the kids all at once when you line a play area with nap mats.

  1. Padding for moving - Place the nap mat on top of your car before you put up the luggage or use the nap map to pad fragile items in your moving van from scraping against the walls, floor or other furniture.

  1. Donate to a homeless shelter - Shelters are happy to receive items that can provide additional comfort to those in need.
