My kids were driving me nuts over Christmas break. It was freezing outside and we were stuck in our one level rambler home. I had an idea to get something that would satisfy their appetite for being rowdy. I remembered seeing an inexpensive gymnastics mat in the Ikea catalog. All 4 of my kids, 2 boys and 2 girls have or are currently taking gymnastics. I can’t say enough about the sport. It is great in so many ways. I ran to Ikea and bought a couple mats and a balance beam. The choice is yours on how many you want to buy, but with 4 kids I felt we needed more than one. We moved out the ottoman in our family room and set up our own personal “get wild” space. My kids became very creative and found several games and activities to play with the mats. These games can be played with either one or more mats.
