Laminated placemats will do double duty at mealtime by keeping your kids amused and by preventing spills from reaching your table. But laminated placemats are not only for kids; you can find laminated placemats with quality fabrics or laces underneath, fine art prints or you can create custom designs. Laminated placemats are for everyone, and there are so many styles available; you can even make your own.
There is a huge selection of laminated placemats on the market. Just browse through your home appliance store, and you will find a great assortment, from the practical to the highly decorative. If you prefer a more personal touch, you can have your own laminated placemats custom made for a moderate price. Usually, the more you order, the less expensive each individual placemat will be, so it is a good idea to have laminated placemats made for a special occasion and give them away as party favors.
Educational and Fun
Mealtime can be a good time to educate your children about table manners (and sometimes there may be a few details we would want to brush up on ourselves). You can find laminated placemats showing the correct arrangement of knives, forks, spoons, bowls and plates, as well as tips for good manners at mealtime. Every placemat has a different set of tips on it, and the whole family can compare notes for educational mealtime fun.
Kids love laminated placemats that are designed especially for them. You can have laminated placemats custom made with a photocopy or drawing of your childs hand, his or her picture drawn on a computer, a photo and family photos and his or her artwork or writing. Alternatively, you can have laminated placemats custom made for the entire family using family photos or pictures of your favorite pets.
You can make your own laminated placemats by arranging dried flower petals and leaves on a favorite kind of fabric. Apply iron-on laminated material and follow the direction on the package. Purchasing this material can provide you and your family with limitless kinds of laminated placemats you can make. Once you get the hang of making laminated placemats, you might consider adopting it as a hobby or starting your own business making laminated placemats.
