Weave Paper Thanksgiving Placemats
Thanksgiving placemats are a great craft for your child, and they make a beautiful addition to the family dinner table! As part of a first grade social studies goal to help children become familiar with their communities and yearlong rhythms, many students learn about the meaning of Thanksgiving and practice giving thanks at school. This craft gets your child excited for expressing gratitude at the dinner table, and gets him to build on pattern-making and fine motor skills that help students with math and writing. Make these Thanksgiving placemats with your child to build skills in all three subjects, and make beautiful pieces for the Thanksgiving table in the process!
