I had this wonderful idea to make a craft for my family overseas - something to teach my little niece about her family living away and add a little bit of fun to meal times. It was a place mat with photos of all of us on it for her to cherish, and maybe keep her busy as she mashes her peas onto our faces!
Off I went to the craft store to source all the bits and pieces to create my very own masterpiece. Before I could even break out the glue, I was so excited to find these great new products on the market. I feared my placemat project was a little too ambitious after all. Let's face it my crafty idea would have probably ended up in the back of the kitchen drawer anyway!
So I put away my art supplies and let my mouse and credit card do the hard work. Check out these cool ways to keep the kids entertained at meal times...holy placemats to choose from!
