Project

Play Mat

Introduction

Kids won't play with their food when their place mats are a tempting alternative. 

Materials

  • Chalk-friendly fabric
  • Chalk
  • Pinking or decorative-edge shears
  • Paint pen
  • Damp sponge

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Craft stores sell chalk-friendly fabric in green or black and chalk for kids; cut out a place mat with pinking or decorative-edge shears. Use a paint pen to personalize each mat. A damp sponge will wipe off chalk and food.
