Good idea....if we make it ourselves?
More Play, Less Cleanup
If you’ve ever picked up a zillion Lego pieces, tried to corral a fleet of Hot Wheels cars, or painstakingly plucked Polly Pocket pieces from the carpet, you’re going to love this solution.
The Lay-n-Go activity mat provides a place for kids to play with their toys and makes cleanup a cinch… literally. The five-foot round mat is threaded with a durable nylon cord. When you’re done playing, simply pull the drawstring tight, cinch it with the cord lock, and you’ve got a soft, sealed storage bag. There’s a front pocket for stowing the drawstring, four clear pockets for storing extra-special pieces, and a wide nylon shoulder strap for carrying. The outside fabric is denim, and the play surface is easy-clean nylon.
Amy Fazackerley, a mom of three boys, is the inventor. After a few too many lost Amy Fazackerley pieces and chaotic cleanups, she and her husband Adam started brainstorming a better way to store toys with lots of small pieces. They started with the large Lay-n-Go, then created a smaller 18-inch version that’s perfect for toting toys on road trips and to restaurants. At home and on the go, Lay-n-Go is a great way for kids to manage their own toy collections. As Amy likes to say, “play for hours, clean up in seconds.” Sounds great to us!

There are directions on this site.
If you can't find it let me know and I will find it later. I am on my tablet and don't have all the features of my PC.
My mom made one of those for my younger brother's "farm" toys. He was born in 1958.
QW. l was looking for the LIKE button when l read your post! LOL
Paus, that is a cool idea. TFS
l would be unstopable IF l could get started!!!
Awesome idea...and I would have been so thrilled with one of these in Kentucky...both the small and large...would have made the airport, and visiting with family and friends funner for both of us...it's all fun and games till it's pack up time...lol...a certain little guy has a birthday coming up in March, gonna have to fit this in.
Thanks for sharing! Love it...now to think on the perfect fabric...

Here's a more direct link to that project. Thanx for finding it, TerryOH.
Wish we had had one of these when I was little. My mom got so mad about all of the legos being out, she donated them to a community garage sale. The elderly gentleman up the street bought them at the garage sale and gave them to my brother and me! We were thrilled, my mom - not so much!!!!!
I too, made one of these for the kids Legos.. wonderfully easy clean up. That was back in the early 70s.. made with fabric from Woolworths.
If you can find a piece of road print fabric this would be extra cute!!! They could play with their hot wheels, trucks, etc.
20+ years ago I used road fabric for the backing of DSs quilts. We would spread it on the floor and he would play and play and play.
Searching for appropriate fabric...haven't found "the" correct piece yet:
That's the best I could find quickly. I checked my photos and don't have a photo of the back of DSs quilt. If I think about it, I'll go pull it out of the closet and take a pic.
Does this hat make my butt look big?
I made a play quilt out of road fabric for DGS. I put pockets one end for garages and airplane hangers. He still has it . He is 14 now so I know he has had it for at least 10 years.
Love, love, love, love this idea!!!!! oh my - so many things to do!! Thank the big man above I am not a grandmother yet - BUT saying that, my DD's GF - both 21, is due with #2 very soon now..... So, I have been racking my brain on what to make this very young mother, now with 2 about a year and half apart and..... this would be good!!!!
And even a littler one, for the diaper bag for big sis when they are out. I used to have toys that my girls only had access to when I was out with friends for coffee!!!! I had some time to talk to adults and my girls had 'new' toys to play with!! win/win!! And a little bag like this would be a good thing...... uh oh, now my brain is working overtime!!! I can NOT start anything else right now!!!! (and I am not kidding....: )
