chalkmatAnyone who’s traveled or gone out to eat with children knows that keeping them entertained is more than a remedial challenge. You have to come armed with a bag full of items to keep them busy while you wait for food.  It’s not easy!  On a shopping trip I stumbled on a great idea from Sam & Bellie called the Chalkmat.  It’s a BPA, PVC and Lead Free reusable (and wipeable!) placemat… but when you flip it over it becomes a chalkboard to entertain your little one while you wait.  There is even a little pouch for the chalk!  I found one at Target weirdly, but they sell laminated mats and cloth mats on their website Sam & Bellie.  No need for those wasteful disposable placemats anymore!

Get one: – and it comes with chalk! You can find them at Target!

Update: Alicia from let me know that right now, only the mats sold at Target are PVC Free.  Thanks Alicia!!!
