I love using handmade materials in our home. However I often lack the skills or the time to make all the materials we would like. Montessori Placemats are wonderful for toddlers learning to set the table. While I eventually made our own we also have the Easy Clean Montessori Placemat which is silicone and wipes clean and the Blue Placemat from Michael Olaf with the matching napkin which washes easily in the washing machine (although needs ironing). As many placemats are made for the weaning phase there may only be markings for a fork, spoon, plate and glass. Placemats for older children include a marking for a knife.

Do you have any plans for the weekend? Yesterday my husband returned from his overseas deployment (he had been deployed since November). So we will be enjoying our time together as a family. Our weather forecast for the weekend includes heavy rain with flash flooding so we may not go far! Stay safe and have a lovely weekend!!
