We have entered that fun phase of feeding our baby his first foods. It is wonderful to watch his expressions, but not as much to listen to his sister grumble during feeding time. We found a very cute and fun solution.

The Modern Twist Kidz alphabet placemat is a welcomed addition to our table. It is keeping our two year old occupied while I get some whole grain oatmeal into a very hungry mouth. The dry erase markers are coming off cleanly, even when I don’t get to wash it off for a couple of days. It has also washed out of clothes, since my little girl seems to draw everywhere when she gets her hands on coloring utensils. Other favorite thing is that it packs easily into a diaper bag and could help when you go out to dinner and need some distractions.

From the maker’s of this placemat…”Made from silky food-grade, hand silk-screened silicone, the mats won’t crease or rip. The mats are ideal for travel and mealtime activities and they feature creative, playful designs that will amuse and inspire little tikes. For parents who live a design-inspired lifestyle, the simple, clean design provides optimal functionality with a minimalist aesthetic. Nurturing the inner artist in every child, the mats are doodle-friendly with the use of washable or dry erase markers so kids can color and color again. All Modern-twist products are free of BPA, latex + chemicals, and perfect for an eco-friendly home.”
The Kidz Placemats retail for $18 individually or for $27 as a Kidz Box (one placemat & set of 6 markers). www.modern-twist.com
