Giant Puzzle Mat
This indigenous design mat is a giant recycled rubber educational puzzle which can double as extra flooring or dedicated zones for imaginative play, block play, or outdoors as a seating area for a small group of children.
Each mat showcases Aboriginal artwork and symbols to communicate a story. The mat can be used as a multi-sensory educational tool to teach children how Aboriginal symbols give information while sharing a cultural experience.
The mat allows you to explore how Aboriginal people have a deep connection and respectful relationship with the land, and gives you the opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal culture and it's people, one of the oldest living cultures in the world.
