When seeking a type of flooring that’s fun for kids to play on while also helping them with learning, alphabet rugs from Greatmats are the perfect selection. These Floors That Teach rugs are available with various shapes and alphabetic characters, helping young children learn as they play.


Because kids will be sitting and crawling on these play rugs, they need to be easy to clean and maintain, ensuring a safe environment at home, at preschool, at daycare, or in the classroom.

Size and Shape Options


Our alphabet rugs have two shape options available: Round or rectangular.

The round teaching rug contains blocks of letters, numbers, and shapes in rings around the edges of the rug. The center of the circular kids rug contains bright colors with additional circles.

Teachers can use the round rugs to place students around the edges of the rings, letting them face each other while playing games.

The rectangular large rugs are available in sizes of either 12 by 6 feet or 12 by 9 feet. These sizes are perfect for a kids bedroom, a nursery, or a playroom at home.

Material Options


Customers can trust that our alphabet rugs are extremely safe for children who want to sit, crawl, and lay on them. These are Made in the USA rugs, meaning parents and teachers can rest assured that only the best and safest materials go into the construction of these ABC rugs.

During manufacturing, the carpet fibers receive an anti-microbial coating agent that prevents the formation of odor and mildew. These kids learning rugs carry a Class I flammability rating for safety. They meet or exceed all California indoor air quality standards for low-emitting materials.

The backing of the rug contains a synthetic latex layer consisting of styrene butadiene rubber (SBR). This is a common type of backing for rolls of carpet and rugs, because it does not cause allergic reactions for those using it.

Pattern and Texture Options


With our alphabet rugs, the patterns and colors in use are the stars of the show.

Each rug features all 26 capital letters as well as the numbers 1 through 10 in the artistic blocks, helping students learn to recognize these symbols. Because the letters and numbers are randomly spread across the face of the material, parents and teachers can have students work to find a specific symbol.

Shapes and other patterns are also part of the carpet, helping students learn to identify different colors and shapes. The material features digital printing technology made specifically for carpeting, ensuring the symbols and letters look amazing day after day, even under heavy use.

The colors will remain bright over a long period of time, as the manufacturer makes use of a dye infusion process.

The edges of the carpet include a bound edge, which eliminates the possibility of any tripping hazard with the lip of the carpet, while also ensuring that the fibers will remain in place without fraying.

Common Use Options


Our alphabet rugs will work in any areas where kids frequently are playing, such as in a kids’ playroom or bedroom at home or in a school setting.

Our ABC carpet is especially useful in kindergarten classrooms, preschools or daycares, where young children are learning their letters, numbers, colors, and shapes.

As students are learning the correct order of the alphabet, for example, teachers can encourage kids to walk across the rug, stopping on each letter in order. They also can create games for students, asking them to find certain shapes or numbers on the rug in the shortest amount of time.

As children are starting to learn to read, teachers can have the kids identify all the letters in the blocks on the rug that make certain phonetic sounds.

Installation Options


Installation of these rugs is an easy process. They do not require any glue or tape to hold them tight to the subfloor. The SBR latex backing will create a slight grip against the subfloor, preventing them from sliding around, which keeps everyone using them safer.

By not adhering these rugs to the floor in any way, teachers and parents can move them to a new location whenever desired.

The rugs only measure 1/2 inch in thickness, which makes it easy to roll them up when it’s time to move them to a new location or to place them in storage. The rugs weigh between 28 and 46 pounds, so one or two people can move them around with very little effort.

Cleaning and Maintenance Requirements


When it's time to clean these learning carpets, start by running a vacuum cleaner over the top, just as you would do with any roll of carpet.

These alphabet rugs make use of a low pile height, which simplifies cleaning them. The low pile height will not hide crumbs and other soils, which can be a problem for rugs used with a deep pile height around kids.

These are very durable rugs, as they carry a limited lifetime wear warranty.
