I know in my head that playdoh is an awesome learning tool for the little ones, and I know that they love, love, love playing with it. I even enjoy mushing it in my hands and making shapes and spaghetti hair on things. But I hate the mess, there are ALWAYS elusive little chunks of it left behind no matter how many times I seem to wipe the table!
Enter the fitted tablecloth from Mud Mates. This thing is an absolute dream for playdoh enthusiast children! It works wonders for reducing the mess in messy play.
Made from a 100% nylon fabric they literally resist the mess. Once you have finished with the messy play you can easily just wipe them down with a damp cloth and they come up looking good as new again. And for tougher messes you can just pop them in the washing machine. They also dry very quickly, so are ready to go again in a short time!
Mud Mates custom make the tablecloths to your measurements, so they will always fit the table correctly. The strong elastic holds them in place so they do not move around while the children are playing on the tabletop. The elastic edge also helps with the clean up. If you have chunks of playdoh or clay, or masses of glitter on the cover then you can just flick the corners of the tablecloth off the table and bundle them together, then you have a little pouch to carry the mess in to dispose of.
These tablecloths are suitable for many places. You can use them in the home for messy play, playdoh, arts and crafts, baking or even at meal time to help with those spaghetti spills! Then you can take them out of the home to the beach or camping, and use them on picnic tables. These are a fantastic resource to have in kindergartens, daycares, playcentres or playgroups.
The tablecloth is designed to extend the life of your table tops, and stop the need for expensive cleaning products to get paint stains and sticker backings from them.
We would definitely recommend purchasing one or more of these tablecloths, they really do work! You can order them here from the Mud Mates website. They come in a range of colours, red, blue and navy. They are priced from $27 – $33 depending on the size that you require. Sounds like a bargain to us!
