Thanksgiving Table Settings

What You Need:

  • Leaf
  • Yellow construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Red washable marker
  • Orange washable marker
  • Brown washable marker
  • Pencil

What You Do:

  1. Place the leaf on one of the yellow sheets.
  2. Show your child how to place their hand (not their dominant one) on the leaf to keep it steady.
  3. Have them use their other hand to trace the leaf with a pencil.
  4. Remove the leaf once they're done tracing and set it aside.
  5. Then have your child take a red, brown or orange washable marker and draw lines shooting outward from the penciled outline.
  6. Have them use this method to make colored leaves on as many pieces of construction paper as there are people attending your Thanksgiving feast. Make sure they use the different markers to create a rainbow of fall colors.
  7. Using the color marker that matches the color of the leaf on each sheet, neatly write each guest's name on a place marker.
  8. Have your child set each place marker at the table before the feast starts.

Helpful Tip:

If you want these table settings to last a little longer than just this year, laminate them!
