Educational Mats & Rugs
Create your perfect fun learning environment with educational mats & rugs. Perfect for playing and learning at the same time with so many options to choose from!
Creating a fun, educational atmosphere is the key to any great classroom. We can help with our crazy-big selection of educational flooring options. Remember: all of these choices double as “circle time” rugs too, though we offer a ton of circle-time specific mats not listed here.
For the Young’uns
A great preschool playroom should be warm, welcoming, and stimulating for young minds. Our flooring options provide all of the above while adding a layer of soft support to the floor (they don’t call them toddlers for nothing!). Age-appropriate choices like our Large Foam ABC Mat or Learning Math Mat provide a comfy and safe place to play while building familiarity with letters and numbers. You can also use Soft Tiles to add color and softness to a space (we recommend Designer Soft Tiles for the small ones – they are so, so soft!) If you’ve got an active bunch, you can bring recess inside with Puzzle Mats or Joy Games Kids Rug, which has a built-in hopscotch (confession: I kinda want one for my hallway).
For educators of elementary school kids (or just really on-top-of-it parents), creative flooring can deliver great lesson plans right under your feet. Our Learning Math Mat helps kids get hands-on with putting two and two together, and our ABC-123 Mats and Alphabet Phonics Kids Mat can really help spell the lesson out. Enhance a classroom theme with our Animal Phonics Kids Rug or Fruits of the Spirit rug (at first I was like “what?” and then I was like “yeah!”).
For classrooms learning a second language (or just looking for an easy way to expand student horizons) Lengualink Kids Rugs are great. These rugs make it easy for kids to absorb a bilingual vocabulary base. They come in French and Spanish (and we’re still holding out for the adult versions). If you have a music and/or art area, the Note Worthy Kids Rug or Joy Carpets Crayons Kids Rug are pitch/picture perfect!
Great learning happens beyond the walls of the classroom. The Zoo Play Mat and Road Trip Map will inspire young minds to go on an adventure right in the classroom. If you want to go further, our Foam World Map and Hands Around the World Kids Rug are perfect for giving kids the world at their fingertips (or toetips, as the case may be). Our Foam World Map Kit doubles as a puzzle and quick-study in global geography and cultural awareness. Or you can build some bookworms with the Read Across America Kids Rug (pairs well with Road Trip Map).
Whew! There are really too many options to list here. Browse our website to see them all or ask a representative what options are best for your needs.
