Chalkmats! Don’t leave home without it.

I love Jaq Jaq Bird!  This company was started and is run by military moms and since I am a military mom myself I had to give it a try.  I was not disappointed.  Their products are super cute, durable and PVC-free.  They sell splat mats, aprons, storage pouches and my absolute favorite chalkmats.

The chalkmats are indispensable while eating out.  One side is a chalkboard and the other a placemat.  Your child can draw while they wait for their food.  Once dinner arrives flip over your mat for a clean, ready to eat surface.

I have tried the butter chalk sold by Jaq Jaq Bird.  Its soft and is great for drawing but doesn’t clean up as easily as regular chalk.  I have tried dustless chalk from the store from Rose-Art and Crayola but the colors always seem dull.  I went online to find some alternatives and came across the perfect solution.  Dustless chalk made from scallop shells!  Its similar to the butter chalk but harder like standard chalk.  The colors are vibrant, clean up easily and are eco-friendly.  I purchased this set from

This Christmas Thing 1 and Thing 2 received some Jaq Jaq Bird Aprons.  The aprons are adorable.  They are large and will grow wonderfully with a child.  Thing 2 is 18 months and its basically a head-to-toe apron but she loves it.  The aprons like all of Jaq Jaq Bird’s products are PVC-free but are still durable and easy to clean.
