We learned about these handy helpers from our friend L, who orders them in bulk and sells them as a fund raiser for her LaLeche League group, and they have made picnics such a snap for me – no more baggies to buy and throw away, and the kids have a plate for their sandwich when they open the mat. You can choose from many different fabrics, so each child can have their own and you won’t need to be pulling apart sandwiches to remember which one has mayo. They even help keep the counters clean as I make the sandwiches right on the open mats, a great help on a busy morning when we are running out the door. I have to go and pack up some PB&J for the park right now, but I just wanted to make sure that you all know about the easy, wonderful wrap-n-mats. I am going to order some of the pouch style so that we can have our snacks-n-sides ready to go in the same way. Happy August!
