Colouring Placemats $5 for 40 + Free Shipping @ Simons
You know those place mats they have at kid-friendly restaurants that allow you to read your menu in peace as the kids colour them in with crayons? Who had that ingenious idea, anyway? If you've ever wished you could have some at home (without hoarding them in your purse every time you're lucky enough to go out for dinner), here's your chance. Simons has a pad of 40 colouring place mats on sale for only $4.99. And, right now, everything ships for free!
These made me a little nostalgic. I remember the ones at Swiss Chalet, especially!
The place mats are on a pad; simply tear them off to use and then discard. They're a good size at about 12" by 18" (big enough to keep them busy and cover enough of the table to keep it clean!). There are two different designs in the pad—a favourite meal (which looks like a hamburger and dessert) and a school of fish.
Keep these on hand for nights when the kids are really restless or when company is coming over.
As I mentioned, Simons is offering free shipping on each and every order right now, regardless of the total. It's great to take advantage and get something inexpensive like this shipped for free when the regular minimum is $100!
