These placemats are a fantastic way for your preschooler to contribute to Thanksgiving and other fall festivities next week!
Making them is also intense fine motor exercise and a bit of an art project! Fortunately, they are super simple to set up -- your kiddos can even make a whole batch while you do some baking!
* construction paper
* optional: laminator
1- Prepare your supplies by cutting strips of colored construction paper about 1 inch wide and then cutting strips in your "base" construction paper (we used brown) about 1 inch apart.
2- Show your kiddos how to weave the papers through the strips, alternating over/under/over in each row.
3- When you're done, throw a party!
Optionally, you can laminate your kiddos' homemade placemats and use them for Thanksgiving and other special meals too!
Have you made woven placemats before? I'd love to see them!!
