Funkins Review and Giveaway
I love it when a Mom or Dad comes up with a good idea for a kid's product to make life better.
That's exactly how Funkins came into being. What are Funkins?
They are fun and cute cloth placemats/napkins for kids made out 100% cotton fabric. Funkins are a smart and environmentally friendly alterative to disposable napkins, placemats or table cloths.
They are easy to pack in a child's lunch, and can make having a meal or snack much more fun.
One of the reasons I think Funkins are great is because when you are out in public eating places like a fast-food restaurant, they can provide a protective barrier on surfaces.
There are lots of times when I wish the tables were cleaner when my grandchildren are eating out, and with Funkins, I know their food is safer.
You can easily fold them up and toss them in your purse or bag, and pull them out when it's time to eat.
My grandchildren love them, and since Jayden will be playing soccer, he chose this fun soccer print Funkins for his own.
This cute Eiffel Tower print is for my granddaughter. Each Funkins measures 13" x 15", and all fabrics are made with low impact dyes.
They can be used as a placemat and a napkin, and make meal time fun, giving each child his or her own special space.
My grandson Liam loves dinosaurs, so this cheerful print was perfect for him. I like how easy they are to toss in the washer, and keep on being bright and durable, wash after wash.
Each Funkins has a different print on each side, and can be used on either one. They also make great gifts, and party decorations.
Themed Funkins are available for holidays and special occasions like Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, Earth Day, and more.
Funkins are a part of waste-free lunch programs that are in some schools. A waste-free lunch is one that creates no litter apart from natural food waste.
These kinds of lunches involve reusable food and drink containers, instead of plastic baggies, foil, or other disposable products.
The average child throws away 67 pounds of lunch waste each school year, so waste-free lunches can have a major positive impact on our environment.
In an effort to encourage more families to consider a waste-free lunch lifestyle, I am hosting a giveaway of a set of three Funkins.
