Thanksgiving Place Mat Craft
11 x 17 piece of construction paper
2 or more sheets of Autumn or Thanksgiving Scrapbook paper
Laminating paper or contact paper
1. Trace around a plate, glass, knife, fork, and spoon with a pencil on pieces of scrapbook paper.
2. Cut out each piece.
3. Have your preschooler cover the backs with a gluestick.
4. Show the child where to put glue each piece (maybe taking the opportunity to talk about where items belong at a place setting)
5. Laminate or cover with contact paper. (Make sure the lamination extends a couple of centimeters beyond the construction paper because you don't want to risk the construction paper getting wet)
