These placemats are great! They give my son something to draw on while he eats and then he can eat right off the same placemat. Sometimes my son would throw a fit if we took the crayons away and said OK now it''s time to eat. Now he can color and eat. And it's not plastic so I don't feel bad throwing one away every time we go out to eat. I only wish there were more than 10 in a pack.
