Meal Mat

This great art and craft activity will have the kids wanting to sit at the table all the time! Help them make their very own unique placemat and you won’t be able to get them off the table even after meals have been finished!

What you need:

  • gift box or poster board
  • clear contact or laminate
  • crayons

  • glue
  • magazines or other source of pictures to choose from


Cut the box or other piece of cardboard to the desired size for a place mat.

Encourage your child to decorate the mat however they like – draw and colour, glue on pictures from magazines or even bits from the garden.

Let them add their name and even the year for the perfect future memento.

Cover the place mat with contact paper or have it laminated.
