Just this weekend I was looking for a surface on which my three year old could go to town with some new playdough and silly putty. Her art table is from IKEA, the small wooden square table variety with a cloth on top of it. Well I had used a Rubbermaid top and cookie sheet before with some luck, but I wanted something flatter and something that fit better given the size of the table. My silpat baking mat was the answer! It was a perfect work surface for all the rolling and smushing we wanted to do. Clean up was so incredibly easy! I will definitely use it again.
