This is the second time we have both silocone mats and LOVE THEM!! We bought this as a birthday present for a good friend and the birthday girl was so excited. My kids love to color while I cook and talk about the Bible stories!
Love the mat quality. The expo marker didn’t run off in the water, I had to run it a bit to get it started, and to remove any extra marker traces. Maybe you can start adding markers that are nontoxic to go with them!!! The ultra clean crayolas don’t work well and smudge, expos work great, but I have a hard time letting my toddler use them. I have a few up and up ones, but just wanted to share my thoughts! We love it, and can’t wait for the others!
I originally purchased the coloring mats for my younger children but my oldest kids (10 & 7)loved them and kept asking questions while coloring. I love the dialogue it creates and they are functional also! They can’t wait for the new mats to come out so we can add them to our collection!
My daughter loves cleaning off the mat just as much as she love coloring on it! We use dollar store washable markers on it and it comes right off. The mat even dries quickly once you rinse it. I love naming the animals with her as she colors and talking about the story of Noah. Excellent quality!
