Our Early Learning & the Arts mats engage young children to learn about shapes colors the alphabet and other basic life skills through lively depictions and areas for practice. These BrainyMats help children gain interest in thinking and learning. EDUCATIONAL PLACEMATS FOR CHILDREN BrainyMats provide a fun learning experience even at the dining table! Children will love to color and draw on the erasable placemats all while developing new knowledge and skills from their ABC's to U.S. History and everything in between! Every mat is two-sided with color on the front and extended learnign on the back. Children can interact with the lesson by writing directly on the "write on - wipe off" mat surface. Wet erase or overhead projection markers and wipe-off crayons can be used on the laminated placemats which will easily wipe clean after meals for repeated use. This engaging play helps children lean valuable new skills - all while having a lot of fun!
