Creating a printable Thanksgiving place mat for the kids’ table has been on my to-do list all month. When I finally got it done, though, the last thing I wanted to do was run to the copy center for a handful of 11×17 prints. So I worked with what I had, and the concept is a “modular” place mat that the kids can create themselves.
I designed several printable activities, appropriate for a range of age levels…some simple coloring activities for the littlest dudes and a word scramble and thankful list for the older kids. Print out as many copies as you need, let the kids decide what they want as their place mat activities, and simply tape them to the table cover. Simple, easy, and customizable. Now I gotta figure out who’s cooking Thanksgiving dinner around here. Minor details, huh?
