    Default DIY messy mat ideas

    My 7 month old has just started finger foods and there is food flying all over the place!

    Any brilliant ideas about how to create an inexpensive, easy to clean messy mat?

    I haven't looked at any in shops yet so no idea how much ready made ones are.

    All suggestions welcome!!

    A cheap shower curtain from Woolies . Take it outside & hose it off, or chuck it through the machine

    Spotlight do that thick plastic table protective as well, not as flimsy as a shower curtain or a tarp. I usually use a beach towel.

    We bought some cheap lino from bunnings. It sits flat and doesn't move is easy to mop or just wipe up with a cloth. We had it cut to size and I think it cost $10 but so much easier then a sheet of plastic.

    I just bought one today... 120cm x 120cm for $20 at baby bunting.

    I looked at spotlight but it worked out to be more expensive
