The modern design comes in two color schemes with a name and labeled spots for the plate, cutlery, and cup. That’s all well and good for educational purposes but the true genius of this placemat reveals itself when you flip it over. There you will find space for your kids to draw pictures and write stories about their day (using a dry-erase marker).
Not only does this occupy them during those impatient 10 minutes before dinner is done, it also encourages them to display their artwork and share their day once you sit down to eat. A cleaner table, less whining before dinner, and quality family conversation all for $16 – I’m sold!
