    Why Use a Montessori Placemat?

    Using a Montessori placemat during meals with children is important as it fosters independence, promotes fine motor skills, and encourages a sense of order. The placemat provides a defined space for each child, allowing them to set their own place at the table and participate in mealtime routines. It also supports their hand-eye coordination as they practice using utensils, pouring liquids, and arranging their food. The Montessori placemat helps kids develop concentration and respect for their environment, as they learn to clean up after themselves and maintain a tidy eating area.

    What Makes Montessori Mates' Placemats Special?

    These kids' silicone placemats are super easy to store and use, making breakfast, lunch, and dinner a breeze. Simply wipe the placemat clean with a damp cloth when food messes are made. With our easy-to-clean silicone toddler placemats, even the kids can learn to simply wipe clean the placemats themselves!

    Our placemats come in a colourful rainbow array of colours, allowing you to create a fun and personalised eating experience for your child or toddler. The colourful and educational silicone placemat is a favourite among kids, making mealtime a fun learning experience.

    Montessori Kids Silicone Placemats are the perfect tool for promoting independence and a sense of community in children while also giving parents a moment to relax and enjoy family mealtime.

    And while the children enjoy using their colourful silicone placemat, parents can also enjoy a few moments of peace as they watch their kids take care of things at their own colourful table setting. With the kids occupied, parents can focus on finishing up dinner and enjoy a stress-free mealtime experience with their family - a true sanity saver!

    Support your child's independence and development while you get to save time cleaning up the dinner table!

    Great placemat

    I bought this mat 3 years ago when my first child started solids. He still uses it every day and loves it! The plate doesn’t slide, which makes it easier for him to eat. And he loves putting his spoon, fork and cup in the right spot. His little sister has one too now :)
    They also saved my table, as he sometimes would hit the table with the fork but the mat prevents damage. The mat still looks brand new after 3 years!

    These mats are amazing

    Love these! High quality, thick and easy to clean. They are such a great addition to your montessori home

    Cute and useful

    This mat is great for my toddler to learn how to start setting the table, super easy to clean and comes in nice colours. It's also a bonus that it doesn't slip off the table and you can stick suction bowls and plates to it.

    Perfect for what I was after

    Great sticky surface to introduce some ‘real’ plates. He’s quickly picked up the outlines too, it’s a really great mat, and the loop makes picking it up very easy,

    DM (Sydney, AU)
    Toddler loves the placemat

    I was hesitant to get this as I didn’t this it was necessary. I’m glad I did as my 2 years old loves it. She will get it every mealtime and placed her cutlery on the allocated spots.
