Yippee! I have been looking forward to participating in this! What works for me is using vinyl tablecloths on the carpet. The felt on the back sticks like velcro to the carpet and it protects your floor from food when "picnicking" in front of the TV, I mean, if you do that sort of thing. I don't. My son isn't eating a sandwich and watching Mr. Rogers while I type a blog entry. I'm not that bad a Mom. Another great use is when hosting more children than you have booster seats or high chairs for. It also protects the carpet from play dough, stray crayon or marker and paint! I'm sure I'll think of many more uses in the future. I have photos, but blogger doesn't want to upload them for me. Blogger, doesn't work for me. Vinyl tableclothes to protect the carpet, works for me!
