"Come and sit with me and tell me a yarn, let me celebrate your life with you," is the beautiful description of the 'Celebration' mat by Aboriginal artist De Greer Yindimincarlie
"Celebrate all you have, all you’ve experienced, and let’s be grateful for all of it. So, come sit with me and tell me your yarn."
This large 3.6m round mat in rich, earthy tones comes with a recycled, heavy-duty carry bag. Like our entire range of Outdoor Mats, 'Celebration' is made from recycled plastic. It is easy to clean, easy to carry and easy to store. Wipe or broom the dust and dirt away or, if your day's adventures have been particularly intrepid & messy, simply hose it down. It will dry in next to no time! Check out this quick guide on how easy it is to care for your mat.
We think it will be a popular outdoor circle time mat choice for classrooms and daycare centres and can also be used indoors for storytelling, art and craft. Consider using them in conjunction with other classroom resources such as The Little Black Game Pack (designed by the same artist) to extend learning in areas such as culture, nature, family life or art.
Also available in another colour option.
We're now exploring how we can 're-recycle' your unwanted mats! Our exciting initiative for re-purposing and re-using them is a must-read.
