Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving in your house? Try making this super simple thanksgiving placemat with the kids! You’ll need the following:
- Placemat printable from the Craftulate (it’s free!!)
- White card
- Colored pencils / marker pens / crayons
- Assorted paper in red/orange/yellow/brown
- Glue stick
- Laminator and laminator pouches
Download the placemat template onto white card. Invite your child to color in the turkey.
Then it’s time to get cutting! Demonstrate a rough feather shape and encourage the kids to cut out a lot of feathers from the paper.
Glue them onto the card – the best effect is if they make two layers and start from the outside and work in.
Once the placemat is complete, slip it into a laminator pouch and run it through the laminator. Note: Use a glue stick for attaching the feathers if you’re planning to laminate soon after the placemats are complete.
Here are the complete mats – can you tell which one my son made? 🙂
Remember to get the free printable from the Craftulate Store!
