Placemats - Take Two

The Clorox Bleach Pen was a bust.

Take Two: I mixed bleach with baking soda until it was a glue-like consistency. And used a very tiny paint brush.



A quick dunk in cold water, a little drying time and presto! It worked!



Bleach bleeds. But the kids dig 'em.

what a cute idea and a great way to teach my little ones how to set the table. I might have to add this to my to do list...

Oh my gosh. You clever girl. These are so fun and my mind is swimming with ideas now that you have gotten it jump started.
Thanks for commenting on my zebra chair wall art. I guess my husband just got used to my craziness and rolls with it now. I would love to see your version though. It is so fun that we all put our own spin on these ideas.

Those are super cute. Very crafty. That's all that matters is if the kids like them. :)

I can't wait to try this. I was hoping to do a Montessori placemat to help teach setting the table but was wanting find something more interesting than laminating paper cutouts.
Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment this week. Hope you stop by again for more toys you can make with your kids.
