Perfect for when we go out to eat and are waiting for thefood to be served, the Sam & Bellie Chalk mat is small so it’s easilytransportable. The chalk mat is a very simple concept: decorative fabric on one side (ours has paperdolls) and chalk cloth (like a soft blackboard) on the other. I roll my chalk mat closed and tuck it intomy diaper bag and then, whenever I need to distract my 18-month-old, I roll itopen and hand her a piece of chalk. The chalk comes off with a dry or wet wipe,no problem.
Gwen Stefani, Vanessa Williams and Angela Bassett handpicked Sam & Bellie’s chalk mats at the 2006 Golden Globe events.
Chalk mats will run you about $25 and you can find them (andother cool products) at the Sam & Bellie website: www.samandbellie.com.
