From this book there are 6 other items derived from it.

    1. The God Made Just One Placemat is a food safe, washable and reusable coloring placemat. It comes with the washable markers and is a huge it with the kiddo’s! They color it over and over. Throw it in the “to go” bag and use when waiting at a restaurant or appt. Rinse under water when you get home and it’s ready to be colored again!
