Table Place Cards

You Will Need:

Small squares of paper (about 3 inches by 3 inches, or bigger depending on length of each person’s name) and felt tip pens or watercolors

Directions:

Have your child paint or draw on each small square of paper. Then, fold it in half so it stands up. Neatly print each person's name on a card. You or your child can do the printing, or you can write names on another piece of paper and have your child copy them.

Tip:

The smaller the place cards, the harder the writing will be for your child, so consider making the place cards larger than is typical. This is a lovely touch for a nightly family dinner and holiday feasts.
