Tablets or any other electronic devices have been a common sight when you are in an eating place while waiting for food, in transport, and during travel.
What if you have a colouring mat to keep your child occupied?
Isn’t that one of the awesome ways to stay away from the screen?

We have discovered a super fun way to keep our smarties and friends occupied during playdates and during our travels this holiday with the washable silicone colouring mats by DrawnBy: Jessica.
The mat is made of silicone and therefore it is easy to wash after colouring. In other words, you can reuse this colouring mat many times without the need to bring colouring books which can be heavy. The silicone mat is super light and is easy to use. On top of that, you can use it as a table mat too!
How we have used it so far:
1. We have been bringing it along during our travels. Smarties will do their colouring while on the plane or waiting for food.
2. During playdates, we brought this along so that the children can all gather and do colouring together during the time when they need to calm time or whenever they like it.
3. This is one of the most important factors why we love silicon mat: for our theme-based learning. The good thing about DrawnBy: colouring mats is that they have different themes/designs. We had a few designs and we made use of it during our home learning journey where we can relate easily. Smarties simply love it.
DrawnBy: colouring mats comes nicely packed in a drawstring pouch which you can easily pack and go anytime, anywhere. If you are wondering if this is safe for the kids, then you can put your mind at rest because the mats are made of food-grade, FDA approved silicone which is soft and thin yet durable.
DrawnBy: Washable Silicone Drawing and Colouring Mats are 30cm x 40cm, hence the whole family can join in the fun too! They have several other products as well, do check out their website for more details at DrawnBy: Jessica.
