Whenever I try and explain to my kids that pizza comes from Italy or that sushi comes from Japan, Kenya inevitably asks “where’s that?” I’ve been promising to get him a great map so that I can show him, but I keep forgetting to. That was until yesterday when I saw these placemats and thought they were genius!

Meal time is not only for eating, sharing and talking, it’s also a perfect time for kids to learn. I love these Handstand Kids All-Purpose Mats because they’re not only a placemat for kids to eat dinner on and learn about their world, but they can also double as a cutting board, work station and perfect place to start speaking a new language. Each mat is bordered with pictures of different fruits, vegetables and other foodstuffs with their names written in both English and the corresponding language of the country on the mat. Placemats come in Italy, Mexico and China — Mandarin anyone?
