Learn numbers and counting while learning about insects. Play the insect counting game on the back side and practice writing the number in the box. Numbers and insect names are in English, French, Spanish and Chinese on the back side for multi-lingual development (and extra credit). Tot Talk's double sided, educational placemats are thick and high quality. Use washable markers, and wipe clean with wet paper towels, or wash with warm water and dish soap for bacteria free learning. For extra fun, give your child a spray bottle, and they can spray it, and wash off their work and start over.
