Place value mats are often used with the Golden Beads and Stamp Game to help organize the materials. I wanted something simple and easy but more than just paper. After a bit of thought I came up with this. I made two. The mats I got from the Dollar Store for $3 each. I already had the white acrylic paint (Dollar Store paint) and the fabric paint (Walmart) and the masking tape.
First I put the tape on the mat to define where the lines would go. Then I used the paint and a paint brush to paint a line down the edge of the tape on the carpet.
After that I used the fabric paint to write the numbers at the top and let dry. And voilà! All done.
