Rolling and unrolling a mat

This is a practical life activity, which involves learning how to carry a mat, unroll it and unroll it. Physically it works on their gross motor skills. Additionally it prepares the children for montessori floor activities. The mat serves the purpose of defining the childs space, by walking around the mat, they are able to physically outline their personal space, and others learn how to respect this space. It is also a good method for keeping the parts of the activity together in one place. This is a very good activity to implement in the home environment.
