Bad placemats, fun art!,
This review is from: Let's Make More Great Placemat Art (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
"Let's Make More Great Placemat Art" is a largish (placemat sized, funnily enough!) sketchbook-style book containing 36 customisable pages (9 different designs, with 4 copies of each - good for avoiding rows when more than one child wants the same design!). They are imaginative designs with some guidance as to how to alter them, but not so much instruction as to quash the child's creativity.
The only real problem so far as I'm concerned, is that if the 'artist' is very proud of their work and wishes to really use it as a placemat then there's no way that the (rather absorbent) paper will survive more than one mealtime, thus making it a disposable book. Perhaps the suggestion of another reviewer to purchase a laminating machine is the way to go!
