BiMoo makes eco-friendly educational tablecloths that the whole family can color on, at mealtime or anytime! The tablecloths are available in French, English and Spanish, as well as in a variety of stimulating themes, illustrated by Quebec artists.
May 15th 2021
To keep the children waiting, BiMoo has thought of educational tablecloths to color. You spread the tablecloth on the table, take out the pencils and color. Among the themes offered, we find the numbers dinosaurs, the jungle, the sea, the alphabet, the animals, the planets, the world map, the conjugation and for the oldest, mandalas.
The tablecloths are washable so they can be used over and over again. We wait, while coloring and learning!
At dinner time, children are more interested in standing around the table and observing what is on the table. The rest of the time, the tablecloth can be used as a coloring surface, as a learning game, as a search and find game and more.
This tablecloth focuses on learning the World Map. It allows children to learn the names of countries, continents, oceans, etc..

We love this company that offers washable coloring tablecloths. It's a green option for creative kids who use a lot of paper, but it is also a potential learning tool.
Bimoo tablecloths are a fun way to stimulate the four areas of a childs overall development. The development of language, cognitive, social-emotional and motor skills.
These motivating tablecloths can be used not only at home but also in daycares and schools.
Here is the testimony of Michelle Lisa Garvie, recreational consultant for over 10 years
"One day, I was watching Salut Bonjour on TV. Julie Blais, President of BiMoo, was being interviewed by Gino Chouinard and presented her wonderful tablecloths. I fell in love with the Mandala tablecloth; I was sure my client would love colouring it.
My clients love BiMoo tablecloths! After colouring all the designs on the Christmas tablecloth, my bookworm client began reading everything written on the tablecloth... even the Spanish words, and she doesn’t know the language!
Families are often amazed by the accomplishments of their mothers and grandmothers. This shows that despite the illness, they are still able to develop, even if they sometimes need help and motivation."
Below is the testimony of Marie Beaudoin from the FQLI (Fédération québécoise du loisir en institution).
Hello Mrs. Blais,
I wanted to send you some feedback on your tablecloths! Long story short, I recently had the chance to offer my 83-year-old mother one of your tablecloths (countryside landscape). I had some doubts about her interest in this activity; she was a seamstress so... to her, fabric is sacred!
Surprisingly, it’s a huge hit! She even asked me to get her another one (mandala)! So there you have it, another testimony of the positive impact your products have on seniors!
Here is the testimony of Sonia Morin, President and CEO of Les Quartiers A Inc. - Maison Marie Fitzbach, retirement home
"We loved the product! It combines relaxation, maintaining dexterity, and socialization. My worker greatly enjoyed working with your product. She even suggests adding drawings of familiar objects (tree, sun, house, etc.) and writing the name of the colour under or near the items. She could ask the senior to read the colour out, find the corresponding marker, and colour in the object. This would help work their memory!
The size of the drawings must be large enough (like the Mandala tablecloth, which has drawings of 5-7-10 cm), to make it easier for those with visual deficits and for their dexterity, which is less fine. It’s far better than drawing on 8.5 x 11 sheets: users can colour outside the lines without damaging the table."

Caisse Desjardins de Beauport brought out the imagination and creativity of many seniors during a special holiday season marked by confinement by distributing more than 250 BiMoo educational tablecloths to colour, wash and reuse in 14 seniors' residences of Beauport.

We tested BiMoo's educational tablecloths
Meal time can be a real catastrophe with kids. I know, some of my kids are picky eaters and it is a real challenge. Now that they are bigger, it is easier, but when I was asked to test BiMoo's tablecloths, I was reminded of those days.

While streaming through my Instagram feed, I always find a lot of interesting things. Smart tips, original activities, but above all, inspiring material. This is the case for the wonderful company BiMoo!
Katherine Leclair, remedial teacher, of Clinique d’orthopédagogie ORpair
Presently, I love using kids albums with pictograms that illustrate emotions or pedagogical games to dive into the subject. These tablescloths are a fantastic tool to get the conversation started. Actually, these tablecloths are without a doubt a stimulating support to harness vocabulary about emotions, and this goes for little and big kids alike."

4 ways to stimulate language
My 5 year old son never had any problems with language. At the age of 2, he was speaking in complete sentences and he has always been very verbal. My daughter, on the other hand, was a whole other story. At 2 years old, she only knew about ten words. I had to start shopping for tools to help stimulate her language development, but I also used my imagination to create fun games.
