putting old placemats to use

Having been subjected to numerous complaints vis-a-vis hot slides, sticky legs and the like from my shorts-clad daughter, I realized that I had a handy solution: a placemat!

I can't be the only one with a stash of old cotton placemats that have seen better days. Turns out they are the perfect size and weight to take up to the top of the slide and coast right down in breezy comfort.

They're easily folded and stuffed in purse or stroller, and I can think of a few other situations where you might be glad to have such a thing handy. Hot or wet swings and itchy grass leap to mind.
