About Vera:

Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Sam and Bellie Chalkmat



Not all restaurants are readily equipped with goodies to keep the kids entertained until the main course arrives. That’s where the “on-the-go” chalkmat comes in handy. Part chalkmat, part placemat, it’s a convenient little reusable tool that will keep youngsters occupied creating mini masterpieces or playing tic tac toe.  Flip it over when the food arrives and you have a wipeable placemat.

The chalkmat, available in three nifty styles,  rolls up easily and ties securely with an attached ribbon. A handy chalk pouch is affixed to the mat to make it a handy portable item. Cleans easily with a damp cloth. Buy it online at Target.com and at www.samandbellie.com for $16. Great for keeping the kiddos busy while at appointments too!  And, who doesn’t love a sweet masterpiece from their little Picasso?
