Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great gift for a mom who doesn't have enough hands." - Relish

"[Let's Make Some Great Placemat Art] is far more interesting than the usual connect-the-dots activity sheets that restaurants give to the chicken nugget set, and would make a great gift." - Florence Fabricant, The New York Times

This book comes with tear out pages that a child, or anyone really, can decorate their own placemat. I purchased it to keep the young and even younger member of our family entertained while we wait for our food in a restaurant. It's an excellent idea. Each placemat is printed with a "theme" that the artist builds off of. For example, there is a page with several cartoony looking people on one side & bird on the other. There are thought bubbles over everyone. The questions are, "What are these people dreaming about?" and "Do birds dream too?" It will keep kids entertained long enough for the entree to arrive. The paper is heavy weight. Its a quality product. But...(you knew it was coming) while there are 36 placemats in the book, there are only 9 designs. I don't know any child who is old enough to think about whether birds dream, yet are young enough to enjoy doing it 4 times. My plan for this book has changed. I'm going to use it at my granddaughter's birthday party. Everyone can pick the design they want. I think it will be an entertaining time-filler while the cake & ice cream are being served.

My daughters love these placemats. It gives them something to do while I'm cooking dinner! I laminate them so they can do them again and again.

Love this art!!! What a great idea too. My kids really enjoy making a great picture while i'm cooking dinner. Keeps them occupied and then they get to eat on it! Only problem is they get attached and don't want to throw them away when finished :)
