Personalized Placemats

Dinner doesn’t seem like the ideal time for a language lesson. You’re not supposed to talk with your mouth full, so encouraging your child to recite some words or phrases in, say, Spanish or French is a bit impolite.

But there is a way to encourage your child to learn a new language – personalized placemats. These dinner table accents are a clever way to teach your child how to speak in English, Spanish or Hebrew. Languages available by special request include Korean, Greek, Italian, Russian, Farsi and more.

To get started, pick two colors from an array of vibrant hues like purple, red, pink, teal, lime and orange – 17 colors to choose from. Once you’ve done that, pick two languages.

For example, if your child already speaks English, but you want to teach him Greek, then choose both of those languages – one for each side of the placemat.

Add his name, and you’re all set. For $24, you can get the placemats, which display one plate, a cup, a fork, knife, spoon and napkin – with the names of the items written on each.

If you’re looking to keep the personalization going, why not add a plate? There are 10 styles to pick from, including French fries, cupcakes and burgers.

This way, if Amanda loves cake, you can say it with a cute and colorful dinner plate, that is BPA-free, made of melamine and dishwasher safe. Did we mention they are made in the United States?

These vibrant, adorable and educational dinner pieces are perfect for young kids. So while they’re getting their nutrients from dinner on these cute plates, they can soak up some language knowledge from these placemats, too!
