Play Mat

Source: Martha Stewart Kids, Volume 1 2001


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


  • Chalk-friendly fabric

  • Chalk

  • Pinking or decorative-edge shears

  • Paint pen

  • Damp sponge


  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.
