Here's how to make an cheap and easy tummy time mat for your baby.

Visit your local carpet retailer and ask them for some bright or bold patterned carpet samples. You will need 8, and they usually sell them for around a £1 each. They are from the sample books that all carpet retailers get. I would go in in either January or September as that's when most of them scrap their old books.

Try to get contrast colours eg black and white, and bright primary colours - babies love these! Bold stripes are also very good

You'll also need carpet tape available from most home stores.
