Coloring is an excellent quiet activity for children, the other benefits include reducing anxiety, improving motor skills and focus. Reusable coloring mats allow you to do it again and again!
Coloring mats are great items to use as a quiet activity for the kids. Maybe you need the kids to keep still at the restaurant, or be entertained while travelling, or just to keep them quiet at home.
The alternative might be to use paper but that means bringing along lots of paper while colouring mats are usually made by silicon and that allows it to be easily folded for bringing it out of the house and can be washed and re-use again (think of the trees too)!
But what are the Colouring Mat options available in Singapore and what's their difference? We take a look at a #ohmymat, DrawnBy:, Busy Mat, and Colour Me Mats which are coloring mats available in Singapore.

DrawnBy: was created in June 2018, with Jessica’s passion and love for doodling. With the encouragement of friends and family, she explored different methods of bringing her doodles and artwork to life!
Having her own children opened her eyes to just how wasteful some kids’ activities were and she was drawn to the durability and reusability of silicone mats. What started as a simple passion for art and creativity has turned into a beloved pastime for not only her kids but kids all over Singapore!
