Teaching Placemats!

Have your kids create their own "make the table" placemats..... each placement must contain the layout of the tableware! Then when it comes time to set the table, they will know how to do it... and want to. :)

Get a sizeable piece of paper, or construction paper, and have them draw a plate, knife, spoon and fork in the correct places. You can even include a circle for a cup. (younger kids might need you to draw for them and they can colour). Decorate, colour or paint, and laminate. Voila!

Don't forget to actually make the kids set the table.... freeing you up to make dinner.
