You Will Need:
11 x 14 paper, felt tip pens or paint, collage materials and photographs (optional)
Have your child draw, paint, or make a collage on each paper (placemat). He might want to add photographs of each person. Help your child write each family member’s name on his/her placemat. Take the creations to be laminated at a local office store or cover with clear contact paper and use them at the dinner table.
Make a few extra placemats for guests. Placemats also make wonderful gifts, especially if you write down the sentiments that your child dictates. If you’re making placemats with an infant, painted footprints work well.
