Ever wondered how the twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac are selected? It is said to originate from a Chinese myth where the Jade Emperor hosted a race - the first twelve animals who crossed the river will win a spot in the Lunar calendar. How did the rat become the first animal, and why did the dragon (being the only one who can fly) not secure the top spot? Share the classic story of The Great Race every Chinese New Year and be surprised at the exciting twists and turns of events with your little ones with our mat!

When selecting your choice of markers, we recommend the following:
- Broad Tips for toddlers & preschoolers below 5 years of age
- Fine Tips for young children aged 5 and above

Easy to clean and very portable!

The kids love it! Suggestion: to have more variety of colours, the pouch doesn’t fit the bigger version of the colouring mat so we hope to have a better pouch to put in all the items into one.

Thank you for your kind feedback. Our drawstring bag is able to fit 1 - 2 regular mats with 12 markers snuggly. You got to fold the mats 4 times to fit them all in :) DM us on IG @colourmemats for more details

Excellent storytelling opportunity

We paired this mat with one of the Kid’s storybooks and retold the story while filling int the colours on the mat. A great and fun way to learn about the zodiacs and CNY

Thank you for your kind review! That is exactly why we created Colour Me Mats!
