This Educational Placemat Helps Foster Kids' Independence!

It’s never too early to start building independence into your child’s routine. 

  • Start by putting dishes, cups, flatware and napkins in a spot your child can easily access, such as a bottom cabinet with a pullout drawer. 
  • Ask your child to set their spot at the table for mealtime. 

One way to guide them is with this personalized and colorful placemat that provides a template for a perfectly set place. They're easy to clean and durable, and come in six bright colors and four different fonts. You can find them at!
