I grew up in a family where eating together was a norm. We would all seat at the table and talk about out day and what we learned and so far and so good. As a mom I have tried my best to teach my boys, all three of them, the importance of a family meal. At times it is impossible to get everyone together due to J. being on a high chair and the rest of us eating at the kitchen island…and sometimes Tyler eating on the couch and me eating a bit too slow, slower than a snail at times.
I’ve tried to dress the
kitchen island table a couple of times but the placemats would get moved around or tossed aside or they slipped off the surface and on to the carpet. But after finding out about Scrappynaps and their lovely reusable placemats for kids I decided to give it a try once more!
Scrappynaps sent us the Fire Hats placemat for us to review. I chose it because both my boys love fire trucks (aka wee-ooh’s) and what better than a piece of a fireman’s uniform to represent them!
I must confess that I got all giddy when I discovered that the placemat comes with its own napkin and little pocket for the spoon/fork or spork, yeah yeah! Scrappynaps are that cool!!
So far we have had no issues with the placemats. No sliding off the table or pushing them around/aside. I bet it is the awesome fabric design. Only problem I can see here is a fight over it between my boys. Hasn’t happened yet but it could, you never know, right?!
And what is best is that Scrappynaps are perfect for lunch boxes! They easily roll up and are secured by an attached elastic band so they really don’t take that much space! After rolled up each placemat is as big as an adult’s hand!
Be cool, stay clean, join the scrappynaps scene!
